Thank you to everyone that has helped make my 31st birthday so special by sending me birthday wishes. It has been wonderful hearing from all of you!!
Of course, I'm not asking for presents, but if you want to help me celebrate in a more concrete way, please consider sending in a contribution to Amman Imman: Water is Life. I founded this organization three years ago to help improve and save lives among the 500,000 people living in the Azawak of West Africa by building permanent and sustainable sources of water. The first borehole built in Tangarwashane has borne many fruits. Not only do the people living there have access to clean water year-round, but their children now go to school, the government is now providing health aid, and another development project called IRD is reforesting the land by planting 5,000 gum arabica trees.
Your present, large or small, will help Amman Imman get one step closer to building our next borehole in the village of Kijigari.
Do you want to fulfill Ariane's wish? Please visit her wish page on the Amman Imman facebook cause: I want to grant Ariane's wish.
