Remember a family member or friend by sponsoring a well and having them listed on our website. The installation cost of a well is about $2,500 (for a well with a hand pump) or $3,500 (for wells with electric pumps and tanks) with the ongoing operating costs paid by the villagers. Please call Ron Reid at 705-457-0783 to discuss funding the installation of a well in memory of someone.

Walk for Water in your community or Choose Your Own Adventure

Over the years, the annual Walk for Water events have evolved into Choose Your Own Adventure. Walks still take place in some parts of the country but people are also encouraged to use their imagination and create their own fundraising activity. Perhaps you’d like to host a fundraising dinner, BBQ or brunch on United Nations’ World Water Day, March 22. Some have recruited their friends and families and organized triathalons, long distance swims, or collected pledges and entered crazy river raft races. Each well costs about $1,500 to install, so every little bit fills the bucket.
