Who are we? Wells Bring Hope 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. We are 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 do we drill wells, but we also provide training for women to start their own small businesses.
We are an all-volunteer organization. Volunteers are the lifeblood of our organization and they live all over the world. For more information about our organization, please go to http://wellsbringhope.org and also visit us on Facebook. Please join us!
