Because We Can, We Must
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. For more information on this project please click here
From March 22nd 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 52nd birthday. Your
donation in any amount will go a long way in helping advancing the
academic performance of these schoolchildren by improving their access
to clean water and sanitation.
Donations from the nine previous Build a Well for Bono's Birthday fundraisers have totaled more than $213,000 and have been used to fund
clean water and sanitation projects implemented by AWF partner Africare to benefit more than 56,000 people in Angola, Benin, Liberia, Uganda and Zimbabwe.
