Review for Water Wells for Africa, Manhattan Beach, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

WWFA is an incredible organization! They provide key aid for people in the developing nations of East Africa through their water wells. In villages where they have worked, the prevalence of water-borne disease has plummeted, families are stronger, and women have better access to education.

The leaders of the organization are truly selfless and devoted to the people that they serve so you can be confident that your donations will be used efficiently and effectively.

Moreover, the well technology that WWFA implements promotes the ability of native tribes to maintain and repair the wells independently years after the fact. Because of this, while wells from other organizations have an average working lifespan of only a few years, the vast majority of WWFA wells continue providing clean water to villages beyond a decade of installation.

Last summer, I had the distinct privilege of being at the 25 year anniversary celebration of one of the first wells that the organization installed. We gathered around in the African dusk, singing and dancing with the people, who give credit to the well for eliminating waterborne illness. It was an incredible moment!
