A message from AWF board member Devlin:

For the past six years, I’ve been so proud to serve as a board member
for the African Well Fund. This is a momentous year for AWF, not only is
the organization celebrating its 10th anniversary, AWF recently
surpassed the $1 million mark for total funds raised, money that has
been used to fund more than 300 projects in 14 countries that are
benefiting over 335,000 people.

Even though AWF is a completely volunteer-run, grassroots organization,
it still has expenses. The money needed to pay for things like the
AfricanWellFund.org website, printing, shipping and taxes comes from a
designated Admin Fund. No money donated for well projects is used for
these expenses.

For my birthday this year, I’ve made a wish asking my family and friends to make
donations to the AWF Admin Fund so the organization can afford to make
the investments necessary to continue its mission of funding clean water
and sanitation projects in sub-Saharan Africa, ensuring that every
person on the continent can enjoy their basic human right of having
access to clean, safe water.

If you would like more information on the types of expenditures paid for
out of the Admin Fund, please check out AWF’s 2010 Annual Report.
