Clean water for orphans!
There is a huge need for a well on the site of our orphanage. The orphans need clean water to drink and to wash with to promote sanitation.
Charity information: Made With Hope
There is little access to clean drinking water on the site of our orphanage for our orphans and the local community to use. Getting ill means that the orphans and other school children cannot go to school and learn or workers cannot work which means they have no income for their family for food/accommodation.
A well will provide clean water for our orphans and the local community to use to drink, use for cooking and for washing. This will reduce the chances of the orphans, other school children and workers getting ill which stops them from studying or earning money.

The well will provide clean water to help reduce the amount of water-related illnesses in our orphans and the local community. Giving resources such as this to improve health is such a simple step towards better health for those using the well.
A main risk is could be that the well is not suitable for the area or it will break down. We have a very positive relationship with a local NGO in the area who are so knowledgable on the need for this well, how to build it and who to employ to maintain it.
We will use social media and newsletter to frequently to update donors on the progress of the project. We always use email to personally thank donors for their kindness, no matter how big or small, because we really appreciate every single penny donated.
