This is the everyday reality for millions in Africa.
But this a reality you DO have the power to change!
In the past,
supporters like you've helped us fund water well projects in Ethiopia, Uganda, Serra Leone, Zambia, Kenya and Mozambique.
One water well project can help so many, In Uganda, for example, Bread and Water for Africa® constructed a water pipeline serving over 30,000 residents in the rural districts! Water wells not only provide a safe water source for families, but they provide lifelines for our partners' schools and clinics.
You can help bring accessible clean water sources to rural communities in Africa!
