Welcome to my Wishing Well page! Click the donate link to sponsor my efforts in meeting my fundraising goal. It takes an average of $8,000 for the WWFA to build a well

Per the WWFA - 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. In rural settings it is traditionally women and young girls who bear the responsibility of obtaining their family’s water supply. 

In Sub-Saharan Africa, 68% of the rural population spends more than 1 hour per trip of water collection3. That means valuable time, sometimes upwards of 3 hours a day, is lost collecting insufficient, contaminated water. Ultimately, a woman’s opportunity in education or small business ventures are entirely inhibited with this strenuous work. And on any given day, more than 50% of hospital beds in Sub-Saharan Africa are filled with water/hygiene related illnesses.

When implemented—the comprehensive approach of providing water, sanitation and hygiene together—has profound impact on the communities involved. In-terms of direct economic reward, every dollar invested in water and sanitation yields a $9 return. This is a chance for us to turn $8,000 of donations into $72,000 worth of economic impact.

I am a big believer in helping people by providing them with the tools and resources to improve their own lives and those of the people who share in their communities. You can learn more about WWFAs current projects here and their completed projects here.

I'm committing to donating $250 for each of the next 10 homes I sell as a realtor to this fundraiser as a special Give Back Initiative. Who wants to help?
