The NSLS chapter at Blue Ridge Community College is working to raise money to drill a well for the village of Martha, Kenya. Residents of Martha, many of whom are widows and/or HIV positive, must walk five hours to gather water to support other villagers and their children.
So far, the chapter has raised $7,000 of the $30,000 needed to build the well.
The BRCC chapter has worked with women in Martha previously, helping them to develop micro-businesses in livestock and agriculture.
The chapter has set up a GoFundMe for anyone interested in donating, here.
If your chapter would like to partner with BRCC on the drive, please contact BRCC Chapter Advisor Dr. Rebecca Evans, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
