TRAINING FAMILIES TO DRILL THEIR OWN WELLS
663 million people - 1 in 10 - lack access to safe water, including 159 million who are dependent on surface water.
I have a passion for appropriate technologies that are low cost and locally reproducible and help give people access to a sustainable source of safe water.
For my role as founder of Fountain of Life, I want to learn as much as I possibly can so that I can then pass on that knowledge and/or practical skills to help as many people as possible.
Earlier this year I was accepted on a well-drilling course in the USA run by Water for All International where I gained hands-on experience of manual well-drilling using the WfA technique.
Having learnt from WfA I feel that we now have a responsibility to pass on this knowledge and the skills that have learned to those in need of a supply of safe water.
In January/February I will be travelling to Senegal, West Africa, where, working with local ministry partners my goal is to start a low-cost well drilling movement.
I am seeking to raise £2000 which will enable me to buy and/or fabricate the tools the equipment and materials needed to drill at least one well including making a hand pump, and training our ministry partners in the field. Once we have the necessary tools and equipment we will be able to reuse them many times over to drill many more wells.
Today I would like to invite you to partner with me. When you partner with me/Fountain of Life it is a way that you can be involved in mission and have a direct impact transforming the lives of many people. None of my work would be possible without you and I am grateful for each and every gift that I receive.
Thank you for your time, your prayers and your generosity.
2 Corinthians 9:10-12 (The Voice)
The same One who has put seed into the hands of the sower and brought bread to fill our stomachs will provide and multiply the resources you invest and produce an abundant harvest from your righteous actions. You will be made rich in everything so that your generosity will spill over in every direction. Through us your generosity is at work inspiring praise and thanksgiving to God. For this mission will do more than bring food and water to fellow believers in need—it will overflow in a cascade of praises and thanksgivings for our God.
