We need to build water wells for the children in our village. It is very hard to access clean water. There are more than 1500 houses in our village but there is no clean water. Children are drinking from the lake which is bad for their health. We have been trying to get help from our leaders and government but it is very difficult so we need to count on everyone’s help.

Our solution is to build water wells. Technicians have visited the place and told us we have to dig 75 meters. Portable water costs $150/m.  We need your help to start building them. Every donation matters and makes a huge difference!
