sponsor Wells Bring Hope is committed to drilling wells to bring safe water and good sanitation to rural villages in Niger, West Africa–saving lives with safe water.

Niger is one of the three poorest countries in the world, according to the 2010 UN Development Index, and one of many places where contaminated water kills innocent victims, most often infants and young children.

There is more to this sad story. The burden of getting water falls upon women and girls, who walk back-breaking miles everyday to find and carry water back to their villages. The result? Girls are not able to go to school and women have no time to work productively to generate income for their families

This doesn’t have to happen. Drill a well deep into the ground and lives are transformed instantly.

* Child mortality is reduced by 65%
* Girls go to school
* Women get micro-loans and start small businesses, feeling pride in their accomplishment

They have hope for their future.

Wells Bring Hope is a tax exempt 501(c)(3) organization.
