Because We Can, We Must

For the tenth 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 celebrating a "Decade of H2OPE" by raising funds to benefit a water, sanitation and hygiene project in Burkina Faso that will be implemented by AWF partner Africare and aims to create a healthy environment for 257 schoolchildren.
