Help build a well for a class

Price: $175.00

It’s as simple as 1,2,3: for students to be healthy, they need convenient access to clean water. But, in many parts of the world, water supply and sanitation facilities are scarce. By bringing water into schools, this gift will bring better health, while giving girls tasked with collecting water the chance to also collect an education – getting more children into classrooms and onto a path of learning.

This gift has brought clean water and health to 4,000 children in seven schools in the Bombali district of Sierra Leone. Waterborne illnesses run rampant in the country and many of the people living there don’t have access to clean water.

This gift is changing that.

“I am proud to promote hygiene and sanitation,” says 15-year-old Mabinty, who is a member of her school health club. “I can talk with much more confidence than I used to. I now know the things that affect us children and how to live happier, healthy lives in a friendly environment.”
