Mission - En Français
The Ryan's Well Foundation is a family of people committed to delivering access to safe water and sanitation as an essential way to improve the lives of people in the developing world. We empower citizens of all ages to take action and effect change in the world.
We have two goals – BUILD and EMPOWER.
Our BUILD program supports water, sanitation and hygiene education projects in partnership with local non-governmental and community based organizations in developing countries. Our current focus is to the communities of West Africa (Burkina Faso, Ghana, and Togo), East Africa (Kenya and Uganda), and Haiti.
Empower: Get involved and make a difference
Ryan’s story has been compelling not just for his actions against the global water and sanitation crisis, but for all grassroots action. It continues to motivate people of all ages –youth in particular – to take action and effect positive change in the world. Our EMPOWER program consists of:
- Youth in Action – This program educates students about the need to conserve water and to understand the importance of safe water and sanitation. This elementary and secondary curriculum helps to inspire students to find where their ‘puzzle’ piece fits in our world and take action.
- Getting Involved - School groups, community groups, individuals and other
dedicated Ambassadors of the Foundation are encouraged to organize their own fundraising activities, help raise awareness and share our story, thereby making a difference in their own way.
- Social Media - In addition to the Ryan's Well blog and monthly email updates, we have increased our social networking presence. Be sure to follow us to read all the latest and stay in touch!
