Just $30 gives one person safe water for a lifetime! How many lives will you save today on behalf of the PMI-Los Angeles Chapter?
The women and girls of Niger spend all day - every day - walking miles to get water for their families. Girls are not allowed to go to school because of this necessary chore. And this water they work so hard to get -- it's contaminated and causes disease and even death. 1 in 7 children there die of water related diseases.
Ida Harding, former Trustee for PMI-LA, has worked with this cause since it's beginning in 2008. She has traveled to Niger three times to interview/film women there about this cause. She has seen first hand how the bad water affects the lives there. And how a well drilled deep into the water table, and inside a village, changes lives immediately and forever.
Wells Bring Hope is committed to saving lives with safe water in Niger, West Africa, the poorest country in the world. When a well is drilled, lives are transformed for generations to come. Child mortality is reduced by 70%, girls go to school, and women are free to pursue income-generating work.
Wells Bring Hope is focused on sustainability, which is why they maintain a presence in each village for 15+ years and provide women with microfinance education so that they can start small businesses.
100% of all donations go directly to a well project.
