Why Adopt a Well in Haiti?

When I was little, a very close family friend, Sita, took care of me all the time - she was like my second mother. Sita was from Haiti, and unfortunately was back in Port-au-Prince visiting her family in January 2010 when the earthquake struck. Her foot was buried under rubble for hours until someone was able to help her out. Fortunately she had been on the top floor of a multistory building - if not, she likely would have died. Sita was able to come back to her home in the US after the earthquake. Sadly, though, she passed away a few years ago from lung cancer - which likely developed as a result of cooking over a charcoal fire for the majority of her life before coming to the United States.
I want to honor Sita by giving back to her home country and making a difference for a Haitian community in need of clean water.
My high school, Beacon Academy, has partnered with Haiti Outreach to raise money to build a well for a community in Haiti. I'm inspired by Haiti Outreach's program - they are different than other organizations that build wells in Haiti. Instead of simply coming in and building, they wait for requests from community members, which means that everyone in the community is invested. This results in a higher success rate for wells built. I'm very excited to be traveling with Haiti Outreach to Haiti in the fall so that I can visit Sita's home country - something that I've wanted to do for most of my life.
Please help me help them by giving whatever you can using the 'Give Now' button. The more people that know about Haiti's clean water needs and Haiti Outreach, the greater the impact! So please also spread the word by sharing my page with your friends and family.
Thank you so very much for your generosity!

The students at Beacon Academy seek to make a difference by raising funds for a Haitian community in need of clean water. We are inspired by the work of Haiti Outreach and want to support them by raising enough funding to fully support a community on their journey towards sustainable access to clean water. This will be done through the installation of a clean water well.

Please help us help them by giving whatever you can using the 'Give Now' button. The more people that know about Haiti's clean water needs and Haiti Outreach, the greater the impact!

This fall, our fundraising efforts will culminate when a group of students from Beacon Academy travel to Haiti to work with the community receiving the clean water well. We will help prepare the well and celebrate it's inauguration with the local community.

Please spread the word by sharing this page with your friends and family.

Thank you in advance for your generosity! Your partnership means a lot!
