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. We are committed to saving lives with safe water and providing sustainable solutions to transform lives. The burden of fetching water falls upon women, preventing the young girls from attending school and women from working productively for their families. Not only do we drill wells, but we also provide microfinance training for women after their time is freed up from the endless walking to get water for their families. We started in 2008 and have drilled more than 600 wells, providing safe water for more than a 600 million lives!

We are an all-volunteer organization, with just one paid employee, and we look upon our volunteers as essential team members who all work together to save lives with safe water in West Africa.

Your volunteering is more than just a drop in the bucket. It transforms lives for generations to come. And volunteering usually has a wonderfully positive affect on the volunteer, as well. For example, it will help you develop your leadership skills and communications skills.

For more information about our organization, please go to http://wellsbringhope.org and also visit us on Facebook.

Thank you and we look forward to hearing from you!

Mission Statement

Wells Bring Hope is a non-profit committed to drilling wells to bring safe water to rural villages in Niger, West Africa, the poorest country in the world. Our vision: saving lives with safe water.

Description

Wells Bring Hope is a non-profit committed to drilling wells to bring safe water to rural villages in Niger, West Africa. Niger is a place where contaminated water kills innocent victims, most often infants and young children.

  • One out of seven children will die before the age of 5
  • 40% have trachoma, which leads to blindness when untreated
  • 85% of women cannot read or write

There is more to this sad story. The burden of getting water falls upon women and girls, who walk 4-6 back-breaking miles every day of their lives to find water. The result? Girls don't go to school--they must help their mothers with this dif ficult task. Women have no time to work to earn money to improve their quality of life.

When a well is drilled, 250-300 ft. into the ground, lives are transformed instantly. They have hope for their future.

  • Water-borne diseases are virtually eliminated.
  • Child mortality drops by 65%.
  • Education becomes a reality for girls.
  • Women micro-financing tools and education, which enables them to start small businesses and help provide for their families.

Founded in March 2008, Wells Bring Hope is an all volunteer, grass-roots organization. To see how many wells we've drilled and how many lives we've transformed, go to www.wellsbringhope.org/

While we have specific opportunities listed here, we are flexible and open to new ideas.
