Community Well

Women and children in Malawi, Zambia, Zimbabwe, and other countries walk for miles every day to fetch water.  Contaminated sources such as rivers or stagnant ponds where they get water can make them sick. A well gives families easy access to clean water for drinking, cooking, bathing, washing clothes, growing gardens, and watering livestock.

*Average cost for one community well: $17,000
*Share the cost of one community well: $8,500
