This will positively impact, & create better lives for 1,000,000 people. <br />Our goal is to solve the water dilemma one well at a time, in a collaborative effort between corporations, schools, & compassionate individuals, who make a commitment and provide the opportunity to help the people of East Africa receive clean, sanitary water.<br />We understand that water is a basic human right and a basic necessity for life. We have seen how a well empowers the members of the community with hope for the future. <br />We provide the opportunity for children, especially girls, to have access to education by reducing the time required to collect water.<br />We will make a difference, inspire change, and transform communities. We will change communities.<br />
  17. 17. ABOUT WELLS OF LIFE::<br />Wells of Life was founded in 2007 with one specific purpose: to bring clean water to communities in need through the help and collaboration of businesses, individuals, corporations and families.<br />The presence of water has the ability to transform lives, uplift communities and create prosperity.<br />Wells of Life is able to provide the most cost effective rate of construction as a result of owning and operating its own equipment. Wells of Life controls the entire process and has the full staff & resources for every aspect of the well-drilling operation.<br />We work with both public & private sector to raise money to build wells. We have many business sponsors who match funds raised by individuals, families, & schools – making it more cost effective to raise money. <br />We typically work with the village elders to determine suitability, then bring in geologists to determine best site location, then order the drilling rig & infrastructure team. We generally drill one well per week. <br />www.wellsoflifeafrica.org<br />
