Seeking Bids to Build the Well

Thank you for supporting our effort to bring clean water into one of AIL’s schools and to the village surrounding the school. As we stated in our previous report, when we initially posted this project we anticipated needing a well in the Yacoobi Foundation. Since posting the project, the Afghan government has begun providing a steady, reliable source of water to the center. The AIL Office in Herat decided that the funds would be better spent putting a well into a new school that is being built. The office is now in the process of seeking bids to build the well, and we anticipate that the well will be in the school by the spring. It is because of your donations that the new school will have a reliable source of clean drinking water, and for that we say thank you. We have nearly enough funding for the well and are hoping to raise the remaining funds needed soon and be able to retire the project from GlobalGiving.

Don’t forget!  The holidays are a great time to share your passion for AIL and the great work that they do! GlobalGiving offers gift certificates which can be used to donate to AIL’s projects. Also, beginning December 1st, the initial donation made by recurring donors will be matched 100% by GlobalGiving. There is only $25,000 available in matching funds, so help AIL take advantage of this opportunity early!
