Ride for Clean Water
Fund Raiser for Clean water for India
September 28- 30, 2018
Come and enjoy making a difference, by providing something we take for granted everyday, CLEAN WATER.
We are raising funds through a motorcycle ministry to provide funding for CLEAN WATER in India.
All funds raised by this event will go 100% to clean water in India. Team members that travel to India raise all their own support and are responsible for their own means of travel.
We hire local well drillers to support the growth of their own economy. To complete a single bore well, with hand and electric pump, takes about $1500 USD worth of donations.
We currently have a request list for 29 wells. These bore wells are drilled in villages usually near a church, for all people of the village. A bore well can provide water for up to five to ten thousand people. This clean water stops the use of dirty surface water, which carries all sorts of diseases. The most susceptible to water born diseases are the infants and elderly.
In addition to bore wells we have been developing “spring water projects” in the hill country of the Araku Valley. These spring water projects are unique to themselves much different than a bore well. Both projects provide clean drinking water, but the spring projects also provides 1) jobs for people of the villages, 2) water for irrigation which provides income through crops, 3) encourages the governments involvement in village improvements. Instead of wasting the continuous resource of the natural spring, it is now diverted to prosper the village’s economy. We work closely with a local native who organizes these projects between the villages and the government. These projects are well organized, are on budget, and seen to completion.
Through these clean water projects we and the local church are allowed to minister the “Good News of Jesus Christ” to not only the people in cities, but to the primitive tribal people of the Araku Valley. We now have the opportunity to visit villages that were previously unwelcoming. They now invite us with open arms because of the clean water.
Our ultimate goal is to share the “Living Water of Jesus Christ” with everyone willing to hear the message.
