ANY Amount Changes Lives
Every 20 seconds another child dies from a water-related disease. Over 2.2 million children under age 5 die from starvation and preventable diseases every year. One of the main causes for these heartbreaking numbers is because they do not have access to clean water. Providing clean water gives life and shows families in need God's love. You can be a part of changing lives with your sacrificial gift!
You will receive pictures of the exact well you supported, the people you've impacted, and GPS coordinates of the well's location. If you, your business, or group fully funds a well, you will also receive a personalized video of the dedication ceremony (example above).
In India, $2,500 funds materials and installation of a clean water tube well for a village. On average, $5 can give one person in India clean water for life. In Uganda, $3150 will help start and/or complete water projects in rural Ugandan villages. Our partners on the ground work hard to identify new villages where water is scarce and implement creative solutions. A gift of any amount can provide life for these precious people.
For all of our water projects, we partner with local churches and local leaders to ensure maintenance and equity of access for all village residents.
There are many creative ways to raise money for the wells. Here are just a few ideas:
- Run any distance, from a 5k to a marathon, to raise money for your well. Learn more here: Running Water for the Living Water .
Gather empty water bottles, write facts about the water crisis on the sides of the bottles, and distribute to coworkers, friends or family to fill with change.
- Instead of gifts, ask everyone to bring money toward the water well for your birthday or special event.
- Hold a yard sale where 100% goes to your well campaign.
