WELLS BRING HOPE
May 25, 2013

I stumbled across Wells Bring Hope through a general volunteering opportunity search, and was instantly blown away by its cause, its message, and its approach. In all respects, WBH is a fantastic nonprofit -- I could tell immediately that volunteers gave their hearts, minds, and experience completely to the effort.

The cause is crucial and underserved -- providing safe water and sanitation practices to the poorest countries in the world is absolutely fundamental, and has the greatest ability to improve quality of life. Goodbye deadly water-borne diseases! And girls can finally go to school, instead of spending their days fetching water!

But wells are just the beginning. One of the outstanding things about WBH is that it has an entire program built around each well -- a well is great, but WBH and its partner, World Vision, provide the means and education to repair the wells, improve sanitation practices, and help women begin small business endeavors with microfinancing programs.

Moreover, it is very clear that not only does WBH wish to change lives, but to do so responsibly. Many nonprofits rush into their efforts without thinking fully about the proper way to implement their well-intentioned plans. WBH utilizes the best practices and best partners, ensuring that donation money accomplishes exactly what it is meant to, and that wells stay functional for many years to come.

For my part, I've been a volunteer with WBH for a few months now, and from the start felt like a true member of the team. Helping out never feels like work when you're part of an amazing organization -- Wells Bring Hope is exactly that.
