How much does it cost to sponsor a well in Africa or Haiti?

Lifewater Child

The average cost to sponsor a well in Africa or Haiti, build a communal washroom, or provide health & hygiene training for schools, villages and orphanages are listed below. If you would like to sponsor a well in Africa or other project but can not afford to do so by yourself, we will match you with another donor as co-sponsors. We encourage you to work with your co-workers, school, extended family, local church, friends and neighbours or organize a community fund-raising drive to help reach one of the following sponsorship levels:

Sponsor a Well or Washroom in Haiti or Africa
Activity Sole Sponsor
Drill a well $3,500-$5,000 $1,800-$2,500
Sponsor a Communal Washroom $2,000-$3,500 $1,000-$1,800
Rehabilitate a Well & Repair Broken Pumps $1,200 $700 
Sponsor a Health & Hygiene Workshop $500  
Provide a community with all essential services (well, washroom & workshop)
$7,000 $3,500
  1. Costs are in $US Dollars because all our overseas spending commitments are in $USD. Prices vary with depth, location and country.
  2. These are average costs to sponsor a well in Africa or other community cluster projects where project sites are selected by local lifewater workers.
  3. Local villagers actively participate in the work, usually contributing $100 to $300 towards each project through cash payments, supplies, labour and services.
  4. If you want to sponsor a well in Africa or build a communal washroom in a community of your choosing, the cost is typically at least $1,000 more than listed above. For a well with limited public access, the cost is typically at least $3,000 more. See pricing notes.
