About

Wells Bring Hope drills wells to bring safe water and sanitation to rural villages in Niger, West Africa, the poorest country in the world. Our mission is to save lives with safe water. The burden of getting water falls on women and girls - which means that girls can't go to school, and women can't work to earn money for their families. All that changes when a well is drilled in a village. Your help is more than just a drop in the bucket. It transforms lives for generations to come.

We invite you to join our cause and help us save lives with safe water.

We are looking for volunteers to assist at our biggest fundraiser of the year. It will be held on Sunday, October 9 at a magnificent estate located on Sunset Blvd. near Beverly Hills owned by a well known philanthropist. The 2 ½ acre grounds are magnificent and filled with interesting life size statues. It is a Hollywood legend location and a place you will tells your friends about and never forget.

We will need help in three different areas of responsibility below. Note that in all positions, our volunteers have made a major contribution to the success of our event by conveying warmth and enthusiasm about our cause and the role they are performing for us.

  • Check guests in at the reservations table
