There is no them, there's only us.

From April 1 to May 10, the African Well Fund invites U2 fans and others who are inspired by Bono's tireless activism on behalf of Africa to donate to the 12th Annual Build a Well for Bono's Birthday fundraiser in honor of Bono's 54th birthday. This year's campaign will benefit a community-based water and sanitation project in the Ebo municipality of the Kwanza Sul Province in Angola. The project aims to increase access to safe drinking water and improved sanitation for more than 12,000 people living in these communities. Complete project details can be found here.

The 11 previous campaigns have raised over $225,000 in Bono's honor to fund the construction of clean water and sanitation projects implemented by AWF partner Africare that are benefiting more than 60,000 people in Angola, Benin, Burkina Faso, Liberia, Mali, Uganda and Zimbabwe. Your donation will help give the people of Ebo the tools and training needed to improve public health in their communities.

Donate directly to this project via paypal.
