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 for generations to come. The burden of finding water falls upon women and girls who walk miles every day to find water. It means that girls are unable to attend school and women have no time to work and earn money for their families.
We are an all-volunteer organization, with just one paid employee, and so we place a very high value on those who want to work with us. The work of our volunteers is more than just "a drop in the bucket." It is the lifeblood of our organization. Volunteers bring their passion and dedication to our team and for that, we are very fortunate.

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 difficult 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.
