UNDERSTANDING THE CHALLENGE

 

Brand New From Global Wells:

Since our founding in late 2012 we have installed ten clean water wells in Ghana, Africa . As a result, 9,045 people now have direct and local access to clean drinking water through improved sources . It is estimated that another 9,767 people indirectly benefit from our clean water projects bringing the total number of people to approximately 18,812.

We have ambitious plans to help 100,000 people obtain access to clean drinking water by year 2020.

Dear Donor,

How would you feel if you could bring clean drinking water to an entire village in a developing nation helping close to 1,000 fellow human beings for about the annual price of one specialty coffee latte per day? Imagine the satisfaction you would feel day in and day out knowing that you were helping to make a difference in this world. What would it feel like to know an entire village was thankful for your help and assistance and even named a goat for you to honor your name and contribution?.

According to the World Health Organization and UNICEF, in 2010 an estimated 780 million people did not have access to clean drinking water or improved sources of water.
Furthermore an estimated 2.6 billion people lack access to improved sanitation (roughly 35% of the entire worlds population).

An estimated 801,000 children younger than 5 years of age perish from diarrhea each year. This means that about 2,200 children die every day somewhere in this world.

Overall 1.6 million people die every year from diarrhea diseases attributable to lack of access to safe drinking water and basic sanitation and 90% of these are children under 5 years old.

160 million people are infected with schistosomiasis causing tens of thousands of deaths yearly.

500 million people are at risk of trachoma from which 146 million are threatened by blindness and 6 million are visually impaired.

Intestinal helminths (ascariasis,richuriasis and hookworm infection) are plaguing the developing world due to inadequate drinking water, sanitation, and hygiene. With 133 million people suffering from high intensity intestinal helminths infections.

For most of us living in the developed world we never think about shortages of clean water and the diseases that follow. From birth to adulthood we grow accustomed to turning on the faucet and getting clean water instantly, and with very little thought or effort. We rarely stop to think about what it really means to have this resource.

More than 3.4 million people die each year from water, sanitation, and hygiene related causes. This is more people than die of cancer, war, and AIDS COMBINED!

The World Health Organization

Diseases from unsafe water and lack of basic sanitation kill more people every year than all forms of violence, including war. The WHO reports that over 3.6% of the global disease burden can be prevented simply by improving water supply, sanitation, and hygiene.

The Greatest Threat of Our Lifetime

 

In 2000, 2.4 billion people lacked access to improved sanitation. 81% of these were in rural areas.

Clean Water Means Health Income & Education

 

In 2000, 1.1 billion people lacked access to improved water sources. 86% of these were in rural areas.

Water As A Catalyst- Disease Prevention

 

Coverage for both improved water supply and sanitation lags behind in the poorest communities – in rural areas and in urban/peri-urban slums.

MEET OUR CO-FOUNDERS

We have the skills, vision, management teams, contractors and supporters to take our mission forward.  You are about to discover a non-profit that is unique in many ways.

Our founding board members and contributors have the desire to bring clean drinking water to people in developing nations. We understand and know there are people all over this world that need our help. At Global Wells, you will not find a non-profit that employs dozens of people. Missing in our organization is a management team that asks for a salary. At Global Wells, you will find an all volunteer organization passionate about helping those who cannot help themselves.

We have no rent, utilities, or payroll. What we do have is a passion to bring clean drinking water to people in developing nations. We believe the missing ingredient in so many non-profits today is the non-profit element. Why waste money on salaries and rent when that money can go directly to those in developing nations who so desperately need our help?

A champion of the poor, Mr. Henning has been one of their fiercest advocates serving on non profit boards in Director positions for over 15 years. He and Mr. Lustig met at an entrepreneurial conference in Florida and after becoming friends and business associates co-founded Global Wells. Their first clean water project in Ghana was undertaken in an area where a very large non profit in New York had declined to work because “it didn’t help enough people”.

Our Volunteers & Donors

Because we are an all volunteer organization and 100% of your donations go to a clean water project we use the power of people and leverage of technology to bring clean drinking water to those in need.



Our Mission

For most of us living in the developed world, we never think about shortages of water. From birth to adulthood, we grow accustomed to turning on the faucet and getting clean drinking water.

We rarely stop to think about what it really means to have this resource…

There are places in this world where people do not have access to clean drinking water.In some communities, people have to leave their homes and walk many miles just to obtain water.

They walk long distances, only to wait in line at one water source for hours on end and then return home carrying heavy loads of water, repeating this exercise day after day. Our volunteers and donors are actions takers.

At Global Wells we help our donors bring clean and safe drinking water to people in developing nations.

It is our ambitious mission to help 100,000 people who cannot help themselves obtain clean drinking water by the year 2020.

Image how great you will feel knowing that you made a significant difference in the lives of so many people for the actual and expense of less than one specialty coffee latte per day.

Please consider joining us in our mission by donating today. Now is the time to liberate your donation dollars and get MORE for what you donate.

Donate Securely Now

We have a very straight forward, proven and effective approach to our services. We solicit donations from our donors and then coordinate with our project coordinators on the ground in the local communities as to which communities have the greatest and most urgent need for clean water. Once the need is identified we take massive action and install a clean water well.

100% of your donations go to funding a clean water project. Our operating costs are covered entirely by one generous benefactor and our co-founders.

We pool our donors smaller donations until we have enough funds to install a clean water well. Likewise we have donors who wish to completely fund a well from start to finish and we accept those donations as well.

To be tax-exempt under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, an organization must be organized and operated exclusively for exempt purposes set forth in section 501(c)(3), and none of its earnings may inure to any private shareholder or individual. In addition, it may not be an action organization, i.e., it may not attempt to influence legislation as a substantial part of its activities and it may not participate in any campaign activity for or against political candidates.


Organizations described in section 501(c)(3) are commonly referred to as charitable organizations. Organizations described in section 501(c)(3), other than testing for public safety organizations, are eligible to receive tax-deductible contributions in accordance with Code section 170. You can check our status by clicking the blue button below.





Our Process

Our project coordinators make recommendations to our clean water well committee. The committee then votes on the community to receive the well based upon local needs and urgency of the problem.

Our contractor is then paid half of the cost of the well as a deposit to start work overseen by our local project coordinator.

Once the well is completed our project coordinators notify our finance committee and final funds are sent to our contractor. A water quality report is obtained and there is a local celebration in honor of the new clean water well being installed.

Our project coordinators provide ongoing supervision, maintenance and training to the local recipients of our clean water wells. We do not install a clean water well and walk away. We continually assist the local community in maintaining the well for future months and years to come.
