In recognition of our special day, we invite you to be a part of a very special cause that will have a life-saving impact around the world long after our wedding day. In partnership with Blood:Water Mission, a Nashville organization working in Africa to end the water crises, we are hoping to raise enough funds to build a deep water well in Uganda. The well is part of a two–year holistic water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) program of a which will improve the health of over 10,000 people living in Argali sub-county of northern Uganda. For most, this will be the first access to clean water that they have ever had. The project includes a total of fourteen (14) wells.
What makes this project even more exciting to us is that the wells will not only meet such a basic need of these Ugandan people, the project will provide training to community health workers, pastors and teachers in order to spread the knowledge throughout the region as well as relieve the young girls in the region of walking many miles each day of fetch water for their family – preventing these girls from attending school. We strongly believe that knowledge is power and the idea of giving young girls the opportunity to learn, and training to the people of the region, while providing them with lifesaving fresh water moves us beyond measure.
Our goal for one deep water well is $15,000. If we can exceed that goal, the excess funds will assist in building the additional wells. What a blessing!!
We hope that you will join us in meeting the needs of this community. Brad and I will visit the community on our honeymoon. We will be sure to send you pictures of your gifts at work!!
Blessing to you and yours.
