The idea that 4500 children die needlessly every single day from contaminated water is so hard to understand.
It's nearly impossible to grasp the reality that diseases from unclean water kill more people every year than any other form of violence, including war.
It's hard to accept that girls are kept out of school because they must spend their days walking and collecting water.
Tragically, 1/3 of all wells drilled in the last 20 years are now broken. Often there's no tools, spare parts, or trained mechanics to fix them.
Water for People is trying to expand and accelerate their well mechanics program across rural India. This is the most effective way to ensure people have sustainable access to clean water. The Adventure Project is joining in their endeavor.
THE HUGE GOAL: empower 186 people to become well mechanics in India. Every $550 we raise helps one mechanic receive:
*Tools and spare parts
*A one-year stipend to help an entrepreneur launch their business.
And here's a really cool part:
$550 hires one mechanic. Who keeps clean water flowing for 5,000 people.
You can do the math if you want. 186 mechanics times $550. That would equal the fundraising goal.
But I hate fundraising.
So I just see it as 186 PEOPLE.
Who will serve and and provide clean water for 930,00 PEOPLE (nearly a million!?!!)
