Giving Tuesday: Searching for 20 Donors to Help Drill 20 Wells in 2020 for 20,000 People!
With Your Help We Can Drill 20 More in 2020
Dear Friend of BARKA Foundation,
Today is Giving Tuesday, and we'd like to take this opportunity to express our gratitude to you for your support of BARKA's Clean Water project.
Right now, we are working hard to raise funds for our biggest water project ever-- 20 wells in areas of greatest need in the Eastern Region. Over the past year, this part of Burkina has been severely affected by an influx of internally displaced persons who are leaving their rural villages and settling in the city of Fada N'Gourma, where BARKA's work is based. Consequently, there is an unprecedented strain on the city's water resources. This new project will help to alleviate this crisis by creating 20 new water sources for the community, needed now more than ever. We estimate this project to benefit more than 20,000 people. Here's how the Global Giving Donor Family can help:
Today on Giving Tuesday (starting at midnight), Global Giving will be giving away $500,000 to the projects which receive the most donations, and Bonus Prizes to the projects which receive more than 20 donations today.
If you'd like to continue your support as we raise funds for this next project, today would be a great day to make a donation! Our goal is to receive 20 donations to be eligible for a Bonus Prize! Please help us reach our goal.
Thank you for your support on all levels. We wish you a Happy Holiday season and blessings for the new year.
