"If everyone gets together, this idea of bringing water to Africa is not far-fetched.
It's possible, and we can do it right now. I tell you, it will
revolutionize that continent." - Bono on the Oprah Winfrey Show

To The African Well Fund,

Thanks for the booklet… `U2 O' is the best gift I could have gotten on my birthday. Don't let anyone tell you this stuff is fringe…it's at the very centre of God's purpose for all of us.

Bono, 2003

Our Goal:

Make it a "Beautiful Day" in Africa!

In honor of Bono's birthday on May 10, and in acknowledgement of his activism on behalf of Africa, we are askin
g U2 fans for donations throughout the month of April.

Last year we asked U2 fans for donations hoping to raise at least $1,000.00 to build a well in Africa for Bono’s birthday. Instead you gave $10,253.18! Enough money to build 10 wells, one of which is pictured here.

Click here to see the report on the wells that have been built, and are in the process of being built, funded by last years successful fundraiser.
