The Obakki Foundation drills and monitors wells in Africa. Since 2009, the've provided over 700 wells and brought water to more than 750,000 people. Their model is simple: they drill wells, monitor their adoption, and then expand development in villages that show a capacity for maximizing their newfound resource. Their wells reduce conflict over food and water. Communities are able to settle in one place and no longer need to move around in search of clean water. By working together to develop long-term solutions for growth, communities are able to build homes, engage in trade and send their children to school.
