For the seventh year in a row, the African Well Fund is pleased to announce plans for a fundraising drive to " Build a Well for Bono's Birthday". AWF is using the 70 days between the release of U2's new album "No Line on the Horizon" and Bono's birthday to collect money to fund water projects in Liberia.

From March 2nd through May 10th, the African Well Fund invites U2 fans and others who are inspired by Bono's tireless activism on behalf of Africa to make a donation in honor of Bono's birthday on May 10th. Your donation in any amount will go a long way in helping to provide clean water for the people of Africa.

Donations from the five previous campaigns totaled over $143,000 and have been used by our partner Africare to fund well projects benefiting more than 23,000 people in Uganda, Ethiopia, Angola and Zimbabwe. This year's campaign will go to benefit Nimba County in Liberia. Please read the project proposal here.
