The proposal for the project that will be funded with monies raised during Build a Well for Bono’s Birthday is now available for download here. The project, which will be implemented by African Well Fund partner Africare, aims to provide access to drinking water and latrines for at least 3,000 students through water tanks and latrines constructed at schools in the Bohicon municipality of Batonga, Benin.
(l. to r.) AWF board members Angela Martens and Diane Yoder pose with Angelique Kidjo, Peter Persell, Africare vice president of operations, and Mary Louise Cohen, Batonga Foundation president and founding board member, at last fall’s Africare gala.
These schools are supported by Angelique Kidjo’s Batonga Foundation. Watch the video below to see Africare President Darius Mans announcing to Kidjo and attendees of Africare’s 2010 gala that AWF will be funding the project.
