Rural peoples harbor the majority of this cruel, subtle crisis. The African continent faces the greatest challenge of any region of the world with roughly 1 of 3 (330 million) people not using a clean water source. Eighty-four percent of these people live in rural areas. This represents an increase of 66 million people since 1990 who do not have a clean water source. Unfortunately, aid commitments for solutions targeting rural populations are declining while aid for urban solutions has increased 60% since 2000. As a result, on any given day more than 50% of hospital beds in Sub-Saharan Africa are filled with water/hygiene related illnesses.

Upon reaching our $8000 goal, an entire well will be paid for and can provide clean water for hundreds of families in rural Africa. Each well is built to be durable and sustainable and will function to serve over 2000 individuals daily basic water needs for over 20 years.
