We built a well in Africa with the Ryan’s Well Foundation
CSNN is proud to announce its support of the Ryan’s Well Foundation. The Ryan’s Well Foundation began ten years ago with a six- year-old boy, Ryan, who, after learning in grade one that many children around the world do not have access to the basic necessity of clean water, decided to do something about it. Since then, Ryan has dedicated himself to promoting awareness of this issue and raising funds to build wells in third-world countries. To date the Ryan’s Well Foundation has built 484 wells in 16 countries. That’s 611,512 additional people who now have access to clean drinking water and sanitation facilities!
CSNN’s goal was to provide one African community with a fully operational well. Our branches undertook fundraising activities to raise contributions for the well, which were to be fully matched by CSNN head office.
CSNN is proud to announce that we were able to reach our fundraising goal as of November 2010, helping provide safe, clean drinking water to a community in northern Uganda. We would like to thank everyone for their generous donations and to thank Linda Wagar for all of her hard work on this project.
