This campaign brought clean water to Kakou (Kois) Community, Kenya.

There are 800 million people in the world living without access to clean water. Let's change that!

Have you ever said, “I’m dying of thirst?” If so, I bet you didn’t really mean it.

If you’re like us, you don’t spend too much time thinking about water -- it’s everywhere we go. When we’re thirsty, we flip a handle or push a button. When we’re dirty, we twist a shower knob. When our garden needs watering, when our pasta needs to be boiled, when we use the bathroom -- water is just an arm's length away.

But, in many developing countries, women and children walk for hours, up and down mountains, just to collect water that can make them really sick.

800 million people on the planet don’t have access to clean, safe drinking water. To mark World Water Day on March 22nd, Farmerama is raising money for charity: water to build a well in Kenya which will bring water to a few of those without this basic human need. If we reach USD 20,000, we’ll be able to fund an entire well!

Help us reach USD 20,000 and fund the Farmerama well!

*****UPDATE 4/2/2014*****

With your help, we've surpassed our goal to fund an entire well in Kenya!

The great news is that we'll be expanding or impact to fund two wells in Ethiopia with the additional $25,093.90 from purchases of the charity: water well. Check out our campaign that will fund two wells in Ethiopia at http://my.charitywater.org/farmeramacharitywells2

    I live I Greece, my life has changed a lot maybe for the better. The crisis helped me see what really matters in life and sympathize with people in real need like the people in Africa. I am lucky enough to have clean water, food and access to education, these people not . So please use my small donation to help them.
