African Well Fund partner Africare has released its 2010 Annual Report, with AWF featured in the section on Water and Sanitation. The report includes a summary of AWF’s accomplishments since its founding in 2002.
“The AWF truly shows what ‘ordinary people’ can accomplish,” Africare said in the annual report. “Together, funds raised are nearing the $1 million mark. Africare has put those funds to use in hundreds of communities in Angola, Benin, Burkina Faso, Chad, Ethiopia, Ghana, Liberia, Malawi, Mali, Niger, Rwanda, Sierra Leone, Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe. More than 316,000 Africans have benefited from AWF-funded wells, capped springs, latrines and water-and-sanitation education.”
Diane Yoder, AWF board vice chairman is also quoted in the annual report. “Africare’s focus on sustainability was impressive,” Yoder said. “Every effort is made to ensure that the wells continue to be a viable water source for the community long after Africare has gone.”
AWF will release its 2010 Annual Report in October.
