By the Grace of God, we are 15 percent complete with our One Year, 100 Wells Campaign, an initiative to build 100 wells across the globe by April 2013. The countries where we have dug wells are severely afflicted by many water related issues, such as drought, floods and especially contamination of freshwater sources.

We have completed construction of 10 wells in West Africa:  six in Ghana, three in the Ivory Coast and one in Burkina Faso. In East Africa we have completed two wells in Ethiopia, two in Somalia and one in Kenya.

Local residents in these communities have played a vital role in building these wells. Your donations have supplied the essential materials. Together we are bringing one of life's most basic necessities into their communities: clean water.

Nearly 1 billion people do not have access to clean, safe drinking water. But we are changing that, one community at a time. With continued support and grace, we will reach our aim of 100 wells soon.

Donate to build a well in a needy community.
