Students Still Need Water

Originally there was a well that gave the community and the students at the Yacoobi Foundation clean water for drinking and washing.  Over a year ago, the well began to cave in and is now unusable.  A new, deeper, more permanent well is needed to provide the students with water to drink and to wash their hands.  We are very grateful for the funds that have been given by all of the donors to the project but we still need more.  Please ask your friends and family to help us to drill a lasting well to provide water for the more than 2000 students who study at the Yacoobi Foundation.

 

Thank you!!!

Continuing Need

A new well is desperately needed for this building outside of Herat City.  It serves as a Learning Center for many members of this small community.  During July, 603 students attended classes.

With the help of the community, AIL has been making improvements to the building.  Over the last few months repairs were made to the roof and a few walls, and the entranceways were improved so that rainwater runoff does not enter the facility from the street.  Additionally, a storeroom was added onto the building. 

Let’s help them with getting this new well installed as soon as possible!

Situation growing urgent.

This project near Herat City desperately needs your help.  While there was a small, insufficient well at this building, it is no longer functional.  No water is available at this time.  The children are unable to wash their hands or get a drink during school hours.  And the community has no access to clean water.  This well will serve more than 3000 people.

Until this project is fully funded, it is not possible for this center to drill the new well and again have clean water for its use.  The lack of clean drinking water leaves the students and the community at risk for infectious diseases.
