Drills in Operation
WHOlives is an acronym for
Over 1 billion people suffer each day from scarce and contaminated water. We provide clean water access to millions.
Over 3.4 million people die each year from waterborne illnesses. We are eliminating such health risks.
Our sustainable model creates business ownership opportunities and jobs for communities in need.
Training for New Drilling Jobs
In Feb 2021 WHOlives staff travelled to Kenya to train existing Village Drill crews. “This is the kind of thing that just gives me chills!” John comments with a smile, “In addition to training on The Village Drill, it’s important to role play sales skills, problem solving and other business practices. This light goes on and these guys begin to see how they could really be successful on a drill team.”
As part of the training, the team travelled to several villages to promote the WHOlives Community Funded Well Program. This program allows villages to purchase their own low cost borehole over time utilizing an interest free loan provided by WHOlives. This unique approach allows WHOlives to impact many more communities and, because each village participates in the cost of their own well, encourages self reliance instead of dependency. As a result of these visits several villages have signed up for the program and more wells are now being dug all across Kenya.View More Projects
You can change the world, one village at a time.
We’re thrilled to work with Progress Manufacturing and the GEMS foundation to bring clean water to a village in Majak Goi, South Sudan, Africa. When this Utah company learned that this community is only eating one meal a day, consisting of okra and pumpkin leaves, they decided to do something. A clean water well will allow them to plant and harvest a crop before the rains come again.
Stayed tuned to see the impact of their company-wide fundraiser.CLICK HERE to donate
