THE STORY:

Michelle McCullagh wrote -

 

One well costs $6,000 to produce and install, and serves 1,000 people for 25 years. 100% of the donation money I receive goes solely to well production costs. 

I will not be participating in the walk like I did last year because my brother is graduating from college and I will be with my family in Arizona. As such my team with mostly focus on virtual runners and donations. My goal is to raise funds for at least one well. Help me change the lives of the women and children I met in rural Uganda.

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 placque 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.

The Who

We are a group of dedicated individuals committed to bringing clean, safe water to one million people in Uganda. And, we especially agree with Mother Teresa who said, “If you can’t save 100 children, save one.” We believe every life counts and we'll be an inspiration for others to take care of the remainder of the large number of people in need.
