African Well Fund is the perfect example of how little it can take to make a meaningful, tangible impact on so many lives. With limited resourses at its disposal, what AWF has been able to accomplish in 10 years is inspiring and nothing short of remarkable.

I've been a supporter of the African Well Fund from its beginnings and have been proud to serve as a board member for the past six years. The greatest thing about the African Well Fund is it enables supporters to have a direct, positive impact on the world through funding the construction of much-needed clean water and sanitaiton projects.

My experience serving on this board has been a great one. Few non profits have accomplished so much with so little from their origin. I believe AWF is truly a unique idea from inception and continues to push the envelope in the fundraising arena. It's why i am still volunteering for them today.

I have worked with African Well Fund for several years now and I am still struck by the simplicity of it's ideals as I was back in 2003. It's amazing to me that all of these people give of not only their resources but also their time. The fact that there is no paid staff really a testament to how much thay have been able to accomplish over the years.

I have served on African Well Fund's board for the last ten years and I am amazed by what we have been able to accomplish. Through grassroots fundraising efforts, staffed totally by volunteers we have raised over one million dollars to fund hundreds of clean water and sanitation projects in Africa. Most donations we receive are less than $100. Our donors know that every donation, no matter how small, is put to work directly in Africa and has a very real impact the lives of the people we serve.
