From May 5th to May 31st the African Well Fund invites U2 fans and others who are inspired by Bono’s tireless activism on behalf of Africa to donate to the 15th Annual Build a Well for Bono’s Birthday fundraiser in honor of Bono’s 57th birthday.

The 14 previous campaigns have raised over $255,000 in Bono’s honor to fund the construction of clean water and sanitation projects implemented by AWF partner Africare that are benefiting more than 73,000 people in Angola, Benin, Burkina Faso, Liberia, Mali, Uganda and Zimbabwe. This year, we aim to celebrate 15 years of fundraising by raising $15,000!

As with last year’s fundraiser, we will be holding a 24-hour Tweet-a-Thon on May 10th. Stay tuned for details! If you would like to help with this or any other aspect of the fundraiser please contact Diane Yoder at
