Tubewells for 25 Families

Gives 1 tubewell
Gift Description:
$1,000 buys a deep tubewell in a coastal area which will tap pure, unsalinated water and serve 25 families in Bangladesh. Water is a daily necessity and many people do not have an adequate water supply to use. A well provides immediate access to this essential element. A deep tubewell will provide saline-free drinkable water to a coastal community, saving thousands of women and children from having to walk for hours and transport suitable water home. A community well helps free up the time of women and girls, allowing them to attend school or start their own businesses. It also helps protect the community from waterborne diseases.
