Review for Wells Bring Hope, Los Angeles, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I'm so impressed with this organization. As a donor for eleven years, I've enjoyed seeing their ever-growing impact on one of the poorest countries in the world. They began by drilling wells to provide clean water but soon expanded their outreach to include education on sanitation and farming methods. Since the women in the villages no longer need to spend their day hauling water, they have time to start small businesses. WBH provides training and micro financing to help them generate income. This organization exemplifies the proverb - If you give a man/woman a fish, you feed them for a day. If you teach a man/woman to fish, you feed them for a lifetime.

Review for Wells Bring Hope, Los Angeles, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been delighted to be a donor since 2009. I am so impressed with what they have accomplished in their first 10 years - over 500 wells for clean water! They not only drill the wells, they provide 15 years of followup with each village that receives a well. They teach the people proper sanitation and hygiene to maintain their clean water. As the girls are freed from the task of hauling water for miles each day, they can now attend school. WBH also provides microfinance training and loans to the women of the village who now have time to start businesses of their own.
As a donor, I appreciate that this organization carefully manages their funds with 100% going to the projects. The passion and commitment of the many volunteers has made this organization so successful. I look forward to supporting them for many years to come.
