Drilling a well in Burkina Faso

Supporting Burkina Faso

$10,000 will completely fund the drilling and installation of a new well, $3,000 will construct 6 gender specific composting toilets in a school or a village, and $1000 will restore one well and help maintain it for two years.

$2,000 will restore and maintain three broken wells in a school and nearby villages. The Georgie Badiel Foundation will train villagers to maintain their wells which empowers them and breaks the cycle of water deprivation.

Clean water, sanitation, and hygiene are of critical importance to a community; creating opportunities, unlocking education, economic prosperity, and improved health. Join us in making the dream of clean water a reality!
