Sailing to Bring a Village a Well.
The racing yacht “Blue”, US 1717, continues to Sail For Water to raise money for our 510c3, Blue H20. We Sail For Water to bring awareness to those who have water and relief for those who don’t have anything close to what we call “water”.
This year, we’re sailing to raise money to provide a borehole water well system in the Monde village located in Buikwe, Uganda. We’ve partnered with Aquascape Foundation to get this done. Why this project? Right now, the Monde villagers get their water from unsanitary runoff "holes” or they walk over 4 miles for a few gallons for the whole family. Since the walk is unprotected, children are at a risk of danger, including the potential for abduction, rape, and murder. That’s a lot to ask for a clean drink of water.
This year, Blue H20 is on an all out mission to put a water well in the village of Monde. We need to raise $9,000 to bring the well to Monde. Help us help them.
