Going Beyond Borders is focused on significantly decreasing poverty. We know that in order to do that, new income must be generated in local communities. We want to “give a man a fish” by purchasing a drill used to drill 50+ wells. However, in order to “teach a man to fish” we will require the local community to privately own the well. This creates ownership and an income-generating business for the community rather than new dependency. This will support local businesses, create new jobs, and provide additional resources for the community. As a result, the income generated by the well will boost local economy creating sustainable access to clean water in the community for many years to come.
