Skip a Meal, Build a Well
We are challenging you to SKIP A MEAL AGAIN!
Not eating does save a lot of money during the month. So why don’t we all collectively try to “Skip a Meal” during the month – the money saved can be donated towards building a water well in a rural community in Africa.
So here is the challenge – for the next 28 days – nominate 5 people you know (who may or may not already be fasting) and ask them to skip a meal – and if they can, donate that amount not spent on food towards the building of a rural water well in a village in Uganda, Africa. If we skip 200 meals, we’ll have the $2000 required to build a well!
THE KEY TO THIS PROJECT IS ASKING 5 OTHERS TO DO THE SAME!
Send your donations (and share the fundraiser) at http://www.skipameal.ca/
The wells will be built in Uganda and facilitated by Our Village – We have built a number of wells over the years through our amazing partnerships on the ground in Uganda and other parts of Africa.
Our Village focuses on making sure that when a well is built, it provides relief for the ongoing drought in rural villages, all labour is locally sourced to help contribute towards the local economy and then training and education is provided to the community on how to maintain the well and use it for additional economic development. Projects focus on women and entrepreneurship like teaching women how to grow crops on their land and build a small business for themselves.
