Inspired by Gil Garcetti's presentation of his book "Water is Key," Franklin Elementary School in Santa Monica has started a Water Circle with Wells Bring Hope. We have set a goal of raising $5,600 to fund a well for a village in Niger, and we hope to reach our goal in the next few years. The children of Franklin were inspired by the stories of Nigerien children laboring over the daily quest for water and becoming ill and dying from contaminated water. The administration and parents of Franklin also are motivated by what a well can do for a village.
We look forward to achieving our goal to educate, empower, and enable a village through clean water and the comprehensive program Wells Bring Hope and World Vision have created.
