Do Good. Do Well. Life without clean water is shorter and more stressful. The addition of a water well in a community is as life-changing as it is lifesaving. It returns trust to simple acts such as drinking, cooking, and bathing, eliminating the specter of waterborne disease lurking in every drop. Without a well nearby, community members spend hours each day walking long distances, waiting in long lines, carrying heavy containers, and boiling every drop, instead of working to earn a living or focusing on addressing other needs present in their lives. Add a well, and watch the rising tide lift all boats— more time every day to earn income, do household chores, raise families, and relax at the end of it all with a well-earned glass of refreshment.
Giving a community a shared stake in their own health, wells access a clean, safe water source that helps ensure children and families avoid a litany of the water-borne illnesses present in rivers and streams.
Your charitable gifts go where they have the most sustainable, meaningful impact on the lives of women, men, children and families with whom Outreach partners to end chronic poverty. All items in the Sustainable Gift Catalog symbolically represent the outcome of the work underway by our international teams, including community-managed animal and farming projects, education, health clinics, clean water initiatives, and much more.
