This week, Goodbookey’s spotlight is shining on Well Constructed!

Charity Spotlight: Well Constructed

What Does Well Constructed do?

Well Constructed¬†aims to enable community development by providing¬†clean drinking water to as many people as possible.‚Äč They partner with local communities and contractors to build wells and establish well maintenance programs in the Upper East Region of Ghana.

How Did Well Constructed Start?

Google’s Nathan Rogers was attending Santa Clara University when he began working on a project aimed at creating an affordable, safe, sustainable, and scalable building design for people in rural regions of Ghana. While in Ghana he met¬†Rashed who was building a tourism business and partnering with international organizations to build wells in his community.¬†In 2015, with the help of many generous friends, Well Constructed was founded.

Well Constructed’s Impact

Rogers and Anaba have worked to bring down the cost of each well to $3,000, a 25 percent reduction in cost, from what was already a much lower price than many similar sized nonprofits are paying. Since the two men are self-sustained economically, every dollar that’s raised directly funds the construction of new wells. Active since 2015, 17 wells have been built and over 13,000 people now have access to clean water.
