Part 6 - Making The Water Flow In Kijigari: What You Can Do


Dear Friends of the Azawak,

After the end of the successful pump trials, Kijigari fathers, mothers and children are back to traveling 20 - 30 miles a day in search of water. Yet water lies 180 meters at the bottom of a deep pipe installed right in their village. Every day Denis, Moumine, and I get messages from the villagers asking when we will be able to bring the water to the surface.  They are counting the time, not in months or days, but in seconds and minutes.  The lives of their children lie in our hands.
Pure and permanent water in Kijigari is only $50,000 away. You can help Amman Imman make the water flow.   Over the next two months we intend to build the water tower, pump, faucets and animal troughs - before the height of the dry season -  BUT WE NEED YOUR HELP.  
Over the last four years students around the world, particularly in Montessori schools, raised the funds that helped us drill the Kijigari Montessori Well of Love, dedicated to our dear late Dennis Hamilton.  This spring, thanks to our new partnership with the Earth Day
, A Walk For Water and the Amman-a-thon have been named official Earth Day events.

Here's what you can do to join our Heroes of Compassion and help make water flow in Kijigari by May:
  • Become an Individual or Corporate Sponsor and offer to match the funds raised by a
    school.  Contact info@ammanimman.org to find out how.

  • Plan your own official A Walk For Water or Amman-a-thon Earth Day event in your community. Step-by-step guides are available. Visit www.ammanimman.org/walk to sign up. 

  • Help in your own creative and compassionate way.
Please be a part of fulfilling the mothers' wishes, and help raise $50,000 to bring clean and plentiful water to their thirsty children by May.  

Yours in Hope and Love for the Children of the Azawak,
