Who is Wells Bring Hope? The nonprofit drills wells to bring safe water to rural villages in Niger, West Africa, the poorest country in the world - where one out of 7 children die before their 5th birthday. It is committed to saving lives with safe water and providing sustainable solutions to transform lives for generations to come. The burden of getting water falls upon women and girls who walk 4-6 miles a day to find water. It means that young girls don't go to school and women can't work productively to earn money for their families. Not only does Wells Bring Hope (in partnership with World Vision) drill wells, but they also provide training for women to start their own small businesses.
They are an all-volunteer organization, with just one paid employee, the Director of Operations. Volunteers are the lifeblood of the organization and they live all over the world. For more information about the organization, please go to http://wellsbringhope.org or visit them on Facebook.
