Water 4 Kids International
Extreme Poverty Is Soluble

Water 4 Kids International has been restoring hope to children who have been affected by extreme poverty and preventable diseases. W4KI is responding to this need by drilling deepwater wells in remote villages throughout East Africa and Central India. We strategically drill wells in communities that are close to primary schools, medical clinics, and trading centers.
 
Because no one should have to drink dirty water
26% of the day for an average African child is spent
collecting water.


Nearly half the population of Africa does not have access to safe drinking water. Villagers, mainly women and children, spend hours each day walking miles to collect water from open ponds, livestock water points, and polluted ditches.


Dysentery, following malaria and measles, is the #3 cause of death in East Africa. Lack of safe water is responsible for up to 75% of deaths in remote villages. Water 4 Kids International restores hope to kids living in conditions like these by providing safe drinking water--one village at a time. Read more >>

 
Make a life-saving impact on an entire community!
For a donation of $10,150, W4KI can provide safe drinking water to thousands of people in a rural area within East Africa or Central India. Great effort is needed to make sure fresh water is accessible in destitute communities. These people suffer the most, but are the hardest to reach geographically. Typically, one well can serve 3,000-11,000 villagers, oftentimes living in multiple villages. W4KI has drilled over 500 deepwater wells to date. These are virtually maintenance-free wells that can last thirty years.

Life Saving Impact
 
Give the gift of life for as little as $1 per villager.
Boreholes can be sponsored in the name of corporations, schools, families, churches, or individuals. With a financial gift of $2,500 or more, we will connect you with the specific village in East Africa or Central India that needs help. Along with the name and location of the village, we'll provide you with a village profile and a photo of the water source from which they currently drink. We will also provide you with detailed information regarding the distance villagers must travel to reach the nearest water source, as well as which schools or medical clinics are nearby.

This water source is the only water this girl had ever known before we drilled a well in her village in Mundindi A, Uganda.
 
Your gift is a vital investment in helping
the most vulnerable people have hope.
Your financial gift will allow children to spend time in school focusing on education, rather than trekking for dirty water. Many hours are allotted to mothers, allowing them to be at home with their families or to learn a vocation. Communities benefit instantly because they will finally have water that is not ridden with deadly diseases. Their quality of life will become greatly increased! Join us on a trip and we will dedicate your well while you are traveling with us.
