In 2012 we at Family Business Place launched the #wellgood campaign in partnership with charity Fields of Life. The initiative helps to bring water, education and healthcare to those who desperately need it in East Africa.
We want to encourage as many businesses as possible to sponsor a drinking well for just £4,000. Why not use your Ten Days and put on a series of fundraising events? Not only will you be helping a great cause, it’s also a great chance to have fun with your team and a brilliant PR story for your business.
We have some fantastic businesses that have got involved and given the gift that just keeps on giving – clean water!
Through collaborations with local communities and churches in East Africa, the Fields of Life Trust builds schools, drills well and provides health education to some of the poorest areas in East Africa. So far, they have built an incredible 103 schools, 4 health centres and 180 borehole wells.
Family Business Place is dedicated to supporting Fields of Life and their efforts across East Africa, creating hope, faith and love to hundreds of villages and communities. Through our National events, we are able to raise fantastic amounts of money for Fields of Life, as well as enduring treacherous treks across some of the most beautiful parts of the world including Patagonia, The Sahara Desert, The Great Wall of China, The Arctic, Mount Elgon, Peru & Namibia.
Now, with over 30 borehole wells funded, built and dotted around Uganda, we are determined to involve even more Family Businesses to pledge £4,000 for their own family well, and reach 50 by 2020!
