  • OUR MISSION::
    The mission of Wells of Life is simple: Build 1,000 wells in 10 years for the people of East Africa. This will positively impact, & create better lives for 1,000,000 people.
    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.
    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.
    We provide the opportunity for children, especially girls, to have access to education by reducing the time required to collect water.
    We will make a difference, inspire change, and transform communities. We will change communities.
  • ABOUT WELLS OF LIFE::
    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.
    The presence of water has the ability to transform lives, uplift communities and create prosperity.
    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.
    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.
    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.
