Professional with expertise in this field
I started volunteering with Wells Bring Hope last fall through LinkedIn and am consistently impressed with how smart and strategic this organization is. Utilizing a team of volunteers throughout the country, we work together to raise funds for drilling wells and facilitating women's empowerment in Niger, West Africa. All money raised goes directly to the cause, where it is then leveraged by five times through our partnership with World Vision. Not a dollar is wasted, nor is any time. I highly recommend support of Wells Bring Hope through both time and treasure.
