The LGWF dedicates most of its efforts to heightening the awareness of our donors to the desperate need for clean water in rural Zambian villages. When the mear act of turning on a faucet at home enables us to waste as much water as a family in Zambia will use in a day, it is difficult to fathom anyone having to walk miles each day to get enough water for their family. Our donors immediately recognize the urgent need for our wells.
We rely on our non-governmental organization and drilling partners to take charge of the completing our well projects. While we have considered purchasing the heavy drilling equipment it takes to actually drill wells half a world away, we firmly believe that this endeavor is best left to our partners in Zambia. They are the ones who have relationships with the people who need our wells. They are the ones who know the terrain and have the expertise to place a well where it will do the most good. Yes, it takes a lot of help from our friends in Zambia to complete our well projects!
