Our fundraising efforts do not stop now just because we have paid for our first project. On the contrary we now have a different set of objectives to meet and hurdles to overcome.
Our next hurdle is to raise the funds to advertise in a Sunday broadsheet magazine to generate new groups who want an adventure with a purpose, to save lives adventurously. We hope to attract groups of friends or colleagues that want to undertake a challenge and make a difference to the world... (if you like how that idea sounds then send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org)
The Local Crew will be funded to drill wells for the poorest villages and communities, those that cannot afford to pay for the drilling. How? We are going to enter an agreement with them that if they deliver a schedule of wells to the communities in the are then we will pay them a wage at the end of each month. In this way the drilling is subsidised to benefit the poorest most disenfranchised.
Longevity and continuity is vital to ensure that the equipment delivers water wells in the the most efficient way. This means continuity in the crew and we want to ensure that everything we send out to them is in good working order and branded so that the crew feels part of the charity and not just working for one. We will offer a welfare fund to support their families if they or their family members become ill. We hope that Alive and Well will achieve the goal of delivering practical help, by providing water, in the right way, with integrity and openness.
