Sponsorship Opportunities & Well Naming
WFSS invites groups and individuals to support our work by sponsoring a well, hygiene, or rehab project.
Full Sponsorship of a New Well
At the $15,000 level, sponsors will have sole sponsorship rights, meaning only their name will be placed in the cement platform of the well. WFSS will also print a banner with the sponsor's name on it, and send photos to the sponsor of their banner, held up by villagers, next to the well.
Partial Sponsorship of a New Well
This sponsorship level is particularly suited for groups or organizations. At the $5,000 level, sponsors will have co-sponsorship rights, meaning their name will be placed in the cement platform of the well with two other names. WFSS will also print a banner with the sponsor's name on it, and send photos to the sponsor of their banner, held up by villagers, next to the well.
This process requires a separate crew, travel and supplies, including large amounts of cement. Since we do not need to drill a new borehole, however, the cost of rehabilitation is lower than drilling a new well. Sponsors will receive a photo of the rehabbed well before and after, as well as a photo of villagers holding a banner with the sponsor's name printed on it.
The Hygiene Teams help villagers identify hygiene problems, and together they work on creating solutions that work for that village. WFSS trains eight people in each village-- four men and four women who then are able to train others. The $500 provides education in one village. Hygiene sponsors will be acknowledged on the WFSS website by name after the drilling season is over.
Combining Sponsorship Levels
WFSS encourages combining sponsorship levels if you or your organization wishes to do so. For instance: $8,000 could represent a co-sponsorship of a new well ($5,000 level) and a sponsorship of a rehab project ($3,000 level). Another example would be to fund multiple Hygiene programs--there is no limit to how many a group or individual can sponsor. Please let us know if you're interested in sponsoring multiple projects with your donation.
