With the help of high-impact irrigation pumps, farmers – both men and women – in rural Kenya can not only produce more high quality food for their families, but also provide enough to sell to their communities. Everyone is happier and healthier, and our farmers can earn an income. Learn more at www.theadventureproject.org.

Today’s featured member from our Well Mechanics Club is Cassie Burback, a passionate mom who raised $1,205 for clean water in India.
How did she do it?
Cassie leveraged social media such as her Facebook and Twitter, along with her blog. Her passion showed through her writing and advocating, inspiring her networks and community to rally behind the cause as well.
What were the results?
She raised over $1,000 — enough to hire two mechanics and provide clean water for over 10,000 people in rural India!
Why do we love this?
Cassie told us that her favorite part was “seeing unexpected donations come in from old friends and being able to connect again.” Not only did she raise money for clean water, but she also inspired and brought together people within her immediate community and outside of it. Awesome.
One well mechanic in rural India maintains approximately 50 wells, ensuring clean water for over 5000 people. Learn more at www.theadventureproject.org, and help us reach nearly 1 million people with clean water!
We’d like to introduce you to Ashley Nielsen, today’s featured member of our Well Mechanics Club.
What did she do?
Ashley was the lead organizer for a benefit concert in Olympia, WA, which featured a local bands in a favorite local venue. The proceeds of the concert went to The Adventure Project and our water initiative, helping to hire and train local leaders to become well mechanics and provide clean water for thousands of people throughout India.
What were the results?
A lot of happy music lovers, and enough tickets sold to help fund 3 well mechanics in India ($1,600)! That equates to consistently flowing clean water for approximately 15,000 people.
Why do we love this fundraiser idea?
Ashley tapped into her local community, engaging them with what’s familiar — a local band that everyone loves at a local venue that everyone frequents. At The Adventure Project, we’re all about local engagement to solve global issues, whether it’s on the ground in rural India training community leaders or activating our next door neighbors to strum guitars and raise funds.
Huge thanks to Ashley and everyone involved with the benefit concert in Olympia, WA!
