How can I make a water well donation in Africa?
For over 40 years, GFA World has served in Asia, reaching over a dozen Asian nations. We’ve provided clean water, education for children, child sponsorship, and community development projects. We’ve also had a wonderful ministry to widows, leprosy patients, and slum dwellers.
Now, we’re moving into Africa! This continent is home to over 1/5 of the world’s population and is known as the poorest continent in the world. Over 1.2 billion people reside in Africa and over half of that population is under 15 years old. The needs are great, and we are looking forward to helping share the love of Jesus with the people of Africa, starting in Rwanda.
Water Well Donation Africa
As we serve in Africa, we “aim to empower the poor to break the cycle of poverty and show God’s love.” Starting in Kigali, Rwanda, we have begun meeting the tangible needs of the people, and the ministry is planning on training national workers, launching clean water projects and medical initiatives, providing educational opportunities and developmental projects.
Our water well programs will be similar to those we offer in Asia. We will work together with a local community to provide the well and maintain it. Usually, a parish will be responsible for keeping the well in good working order and the area around the well looking clean and maintained. Should the well or pump need repairs, GFA World will work with that local church to ensure repairs are made in a timely fashion.
Rwanda is the country in which we are launching, but we plan to expand to six other African nations in the next few years. So, if you are looking to make a donation that can enable a water well project in Africa, consider GFA World. We’re excited to see how God will use us in this new and exciting initiative.
