As we are so close to finishing our first well in Ethiopia, we are excited about the ripple effects that this well, and the ones to come in the future, will have on the community of people around it.
With our Women at Risk project located near the site of the well, we are grateful that multiple Mocha Club partners are working together and will benefit together from this new source of clean water.
Thanks to Ethiopian Kale Heywet Church and their commitment to seeing Ethiopians live healthy well-rounded lives, we have seen that not only is the community given water, they are trained in how to maintain a well and keep it operating. EKHC has built almost 1200 wells since 1986 and it is estimated that over 1.4 million people have access to safe water and improved sanitation facilities as a result of this.
We wait expectantly to hear of the completion of this first well (and we can’t WAIT to show you pictures of it!) and look forward to starting on the second well in this area.
Your $7 a month towards our Clean Water project ensures that wells are built, that wells are maintained, and that the ripple effect will be felt for years to come.
