Scope of Good Hope Wells:
Our program's mission is to provide clean and drinkable water to as many communities as we can in East, West and North Africa. Founded in May 2013, we have funded the digging of five wells in Africa which provide clean water for many villages, crops and livestock. The average cost of a well can exceed $15,000 but one well can save hundreds of lives and change the lives of thousands of people.
Our major way we raise funds is our Annual Running & Walking Well 5K which has taken place for the last four years every spring on the North Shore of Boston. In the future we hope to apply for grants so additional wells can be funded.
