DONATE A WATER WELL

TO DATE WE HAVE INSTALLED OVER 40 WATER WELLS

Thank you for your interest in donating a water well.  Although we donate at least one water well after each Yoga Teacher Training Course, we always welcome more donations.

By donating a water well, you are assisting more than just one family.  In Cambodia, families share what they have with their neighbours.  So each water well installed supports multiple households.

Some donors choose to have a water well installed in honour of a loved one they have recently lost.  This is a great way to keep someone’s memory alive.   We also have a lot of schools do fundraising through bake sales to raise funds for water wells.  As well people working in offices gather up change to install one.  Whatever your reason is, we appreciate the help.

WATER WELLS

Our water well initiative is called wedigwells.com.  Our mission is simple: To provide deep water wells and hygiene education to families in Cambodia.

From the funds generated from each Yoga Teacher Training Course, we dig and install clean water wells.  As well we receive donations from the general public for water wells to be installed in honor of someone’s name.

We have a long waiting list of less fortunate families in the outskirts of Siem Reap who desperately need access to clean water.

As soon as we are ready to dig a well, we visit one of the families on our list.  First we inspect the land to find the most suitable location for the well.  The well can not be near livestock or latrines.  Also it can not be on low grounds.  After our team inspects the location, we do a 60 meters deep test drill.  Once we reach water, we take a sample and test it for clarity, as well as bacteria and viruses.

Once the results come back in our favour, we dig and install the well.  This typically is a 3 day process.  We always hire local workers and purchase the supplies locally in order to support the community economically as well.

Once the well has been installed, we do another water test and then the families can start enjoying the gift of clean water.  We always provide free maintenance and follow up with families to ensure that there are no problems with the well, pump or quality of water.

Cost of a water well is only $500.  To give you a breakdown of how the funds are spent:

  • Labour & parts = $360
  • Food & transport for workers = $30
  • Water testing = $100
  • Signage = $10
  • Photos & GPS marking = $0
  • Maintenance = $0
  • Hygiene education = $0

DONATION FORM

100% of your donation goes towards the well.  We do not take any administrative fees.

Once we install the water well you have generously donated, we will install a plaque with the installation date and your name (or in memory of). We then will send you photos and videos.
If you leave this empty, the plaque will read "Generously donated by an anonymous friend"
