BENEFITING: WELLS OF LIFE INC

EVENT: 3rd Annual Run 4 Water 5k/1k

EVENT DATE: Apr 22, 2018

THE STORY:

Mother Teresa said, “If you can’t save 100 children, save one. "


Every year thousands of children die in Uganda from drinking dirty water.  For $6000 Wells of Life can drill a well and provide clean water to 1000 people for 25 years, saving countless lives. 


I am raising funds to drill a well in Uganda, please sponsor me in the upcoming Wells of Life 5K run.  Please click on the sponsor button and give generously!

Next Step

 

We believe every life counts!

 

Our goal is to fund 100 "Wells of Life Giving Water" Wells to supply clean water and hope to the rural villagers of Uganda. One well costs $6,000 to produce and install, and serves 1,000 people for 25 years. 100% of the well donation money goes solely to well production costs.

 

The Why

We believe clean drinking water is a basic human right for all people. We view the lack of water as the taproot of poverty in the developing world. By providing water to communities, we have seen a measurable step towards sustainable living, a decrease in water-borne illness, a 50% decrease in infant mortality, and the opportunity of schooling for children, especially girls and women.  

Equally important is the opportunity for our local families to draw closer together through service. Being of service increases our empathy, humanity and appreciation for the gifts we have daily. Everyone has an opportunity to make a difference, to use their time, talent and treasures to save lives; and inspire their peers. Partnering with corporations allows everyone to play a part and promotes teamwork. This strengthens community and family bonding; and everyone becomes a champion of change!

When our local communities and school children place a “well of life” in a community in Uganda, they’re able to see photos of the villagers they are serving. There will be a dedication plaque placed at the well with the donor's name and message. And the people of Uganda are able to see that their lives matter! Giving the gift of clean water is the most measurable act of love and service anyone can provide.
