Please seriously consider giving at least $50 to the project. Along with the $10 bonus from the "Square Cash" app, that will make it $60. And, we are not asking for a continuing financial commitment - only a one time gift of $50 or more.
We here at In Layman's Terms are happy to continue to bring you completely free content via our podcast. We have done this for going on five years now.
Our hope is that you will return the favor, not to us, but to the people of the village of Tabaka, Kenya and fully fund this well project.
No Fee, plus $10 Bonus Donation
After much research, we are set to install a permanent and professionally drilled fresh water well for the village of Tabaka-Kissi, Kenya.
Now all we need is your help to fund this very important project. In coordination with Fred Ancho, head of Kenyan Christian Arts, and Borehole Masters of Nairobi, Kenya, plans are in place for the following:
Tabaka is about 300 miles west of Nairobi, lives on locally grown crops, and about $200 a month. We are convinced this well project will permanently free the residents of Tabaka from poverty and enable them to further industrialize their community.
It doesn't take much imagination to understand how your day would be disrupted and hindered if simply getting a drink of water took carrying 40 pound jugs of water for several hundred yards instead of going to the tap and turning it on.
Imagine if a full-time job of one of your family members was gathering water and how that would hinder your potential. Imagine what it might mean for your marriage if you weren't able to bathe properly on a regular basis! Fortunately for us in America, that is not the situation and we can spend that time providing for our families in more productive ways.
Imagine what the villagers of Tabaka could accomplish if gathering water from local streams was not one of their full-time jobs.
Here is a short slide show of the residents gathering daily water:
One thing that bedevils American charitable organizations is the fact that they often have to pay salaries and expenses to individuals and organiztions who are facilitating that charity full-time.
Not so with us here at "In Layman's Terms".
No one will benefit from this financially except those we are trying to help. We will not make profit from poverty. Virtually 100% of the funds we will raise for this project will go to individuals, organizations, and businesses in the country of Kenya.
Additionally, many charitiable organizations end up doing more harm than good in their efforts due to the fact that they are not directly connected to the individuals on the ground. Our efforts here have been born from months of discussion with the villagers and leaders of Tabaka. We're not guessing about what will help. We know because this fresh water well is what has been requested by the people there.
With this project, we have circumvented the normal 30 to 50% administrative costs associated with most "American to Foreign" relief efforts. "Direct giving" is much like "factory to consumer" economics. It cuts out all of the middle men between our dollars and those who need our help.
