Wells of Love

What We Do

Aid, empower, bring hope

 
 

Wells of Love is the service learning program of Amman Imman: Water is Life. Amman Imman is dedicated to empowering the world’s most underserved and vulnerable indigenous populations by addressing their most essential needs.  Serving as a conduit between these populations and the rest of the world,  Amman Imman raises awareness and engages individuals of all ages to take action.


Since 2006, Amman Imman has been supplying permanent sources of water in the Azawak of West Africa to save and improve the lives of the people living there.


The Wells of Love program was initiated in 2006.  Students in over 100 schools have been empowered as “Heroes of Compassion” - empathic leaders with caring, philanthropic spirits – by bringing water and hope to the children and adults living in the Azawak. 


Wells of Love educates students about pressing global issues, like climate change, desertification and water scarcity.  They learn about indigenous people directly affected by these global concerns.  Students develop an ethic of “service leadership” and are guided to understand that leadership is about exercising compassion rather than wielding personal power. The program provides resources  and activities for youth to learn and take action in collaboration with their peers in schools around the world.


With the help of these Heroes, Amman Imman is constructing borehole wells across the Azawak region.  Each well provides life-giving water to over 25,000 people and animals. These Oases of Life make it possible for schools to be built, agricultural, reforestation and environmental protection programs to be developed, and food and health aid to be delivered.
