WELLS OF LIFE INC

WATER MISSION

Our mission at Wells of Life is to collaborate with and encourage our local youth, families, schools and businesses by inviting them to join us in the ultimate act of love: the funding and drilling of 1,000 water wells, over a ten year period, for the people of Uganda.

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 will be an inspiration for others to take care of the remainder of the large number of people in need.

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.  This act of love provides hope and sustainability to these beautiful people.  

Equally important is engaging our local youth and families by inspiring the act of service in collaboration with their own community. With all of the distractions that lead them to things that do not serve them, being of service increases their empathy, humanity, perspective, and in effect is healing to areas of their own lives that are lacking.  Our youth have the opportunity to make a huge difference, to use their time, talent and treasures, and to inspire their peers. Everyone has a "water hero" role to play.  Additionally, in sharing their experiences with their families, they strengthen the communication channels, build stronger community bonds, and become champions of change.

When our donors fund and place a “well of life” in a community in Uganda, they’re able to see photos of the villagers they are serving. And, the people of Uganda are able to see the photos of the children who have so dramatically impacted their lives. Giving the gift of clean water is the most measurable act of service and love anyone can provide.
