Benefiting AMMAN IMMAN WATER IS LIFE, INC.

Welcome to our main campaign fundraising page! You can make a donation or create your own page. Thank you!

We are excited to announce that we've received a grant from the Vibrant Village Foundation for $130,000 to build a new borehole! 

We are still raising funds for the project...and WE NEED YOUR HELP!

PLEASE!  Join our campaign today!  Rally your friends and family by creating a fundraising page:   

By building a page you can easily collect donations:
* for an event you want to sponsor
* to highlight a special occasion like your birthday or graduation
* in memory of someone you love
* for your own creative fundraising project
It's easy and safe.  The funds are sent securely to Amman Imman through FirstGiving.
Here's what you'll be raising funds for:
We are currently in Niger, building a borehole in the Azawak this winter.  A new borehole will ease the thirst of over 25,000 people - children, adults and refugees who've fleed Libya - and their animals. Without water, the people of the Azawak suffer not only from thirst but also from hunger. UN aid agencies consider the current drought and food crisis in Niger to be worse than it's been in over a decade. 
YOU CAN HELP ALLEVIATE THIS CRISIS. Amman Imman needs additional funds to complete this borehole project to supplement the grant we've received. Over the winter, in addition to building the borehole, we'll be working with our communities to empower them to use their water. They'll be able to grow food, support their health and generate revenue for their families.  
Here's what you do to get started (it's easy!):
* Click the FUNDRAISE button on the top right of this page.
* Create your FirstGiving account, if you don't already have one. 
* You can choose to join or start a team. 
* Edit your page to tell your story.  A personal appeal makes the most impact.  Add a photo. 
* Send the link to your networks, family, friends and ask them to donate and support what you care about.  Give them the opportunity to help.
 
EVERY LITTLE BIT ADDS UP!

Together we can contribute towards building a future of hope for another 25,000 in Niger.
