The Wishing Well Project

Numerous communities in Zambia suffer from contaminated water sources and waterborne diseases such as Dysentery, Cholera, E. coli, and even SARS (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome).

In one and a half years, Good Neighbors Canada has built four wells in communities that didn’t have clean, readily available water.

This project changed the lives of over 950 people so far.

"Before the Wishing Well project helped us, we used to drink water from a stream, sharing it with animals. Our children were constantly getting sick and missing classes, but now this is a story of the past. We would like to thank Good Neighbors Canada for the work you are doing in changing the lives of people in our vulnerable communities. "

How wells help schools

In many of the rural villages we work at in Zambia, children are the ones in charge of fetching water, so their parents can work.

These kids have to travel great distances everyday, on uneven terrain, in search of water.

 

On average, they walk 4 hours a day.

 

One of the goals of our project is to improve school performance and attendance.

We not only want to provide safe water for the community to drink, bathe, cook, brush their teeth and wash their hands.

We want these kids to just be kids and use these 4 hours to learn and play.
