Water Well Project

The Worku-Jember school has been dependent on water from a hand-dug well that has now gone dry. Plans are being put into place to contract with local professionals to replace this with a 100ft deep well that will serve the water needs of students, faculty, and the community for the forseeable future. Once in place, it will be locally maintained. As you can imagine, this is an urgent need. 


Partner with community leaders, faith groups, local government agencies, and NGOs to support sustainable community development in rural Ethiopia, with special emphasis on issues impacting women and girls.


Empower women and girls in rural Ethiopia by eradicating female circumcision, early marriage, and illiteracy, and providing access to clean water, flour mills, and training on basic health and hygiene.
