Wells Bring Hope is committed to drilling wells that bring safe water and sanitation to rural villages in Niger - the poorest country in the world. Since our inception in 2008, we have funded almost 350 wells - transforming the lives of almost 230,000 people, the majority of them children. We view the drilling of a well as the first step in reversing a downward spiral of poverty. Working with our partner, World Vision we provide 15+ years of education in sanitation, hygiene, and well maintenance for each village where we drill a well. We also provide microfinance education and support to help women in these villages to start their own businesses. We do not just drill a well and leave; we aim for significant, permanent change in every village.
Your help is more than just a drop in the bucket, it is life changing. We invite you to join our cause and help make a lasting impact on the lives of others.
