WHY BUILD WELLS • Every day thousands of people in rural and some urban areas prepare to go to school and work and do not have access to clean water • No access to water or dirty water leads to illnesses and therefore people cannot go to work and school. • Building wells improves people’s lives and productivity. • It improves health and keeps students in school • Keeps animals healthy so that they can feed families in rural communities • Improves chances of building more schools • Reduces financial burdens on schools which often buy water to meet their basic needs. Their money can now go to books and other educational supplies
