Our new website is up for ECOWAS Clean Water Initiative
You can view it at coreyengelen.net or corey-engelen.info
We have a goal to create an additional 125 new clean water well sites in Mali, Guinea Conakry, Sierra Leone and Ivory Coast this up coming quarter.
We want to thank our over seas partners for providing funding to accomplish this goal. We do not accept donations directly to cover the cost of these items just yet as we are awaiting 501 (c) (3) status from the IRS.
But thanks to the many people who have offered your money and time to serve this growing need. There are many good groups that do accept money for their initiatives and we ask that you please support them.
We will be happy to let you know when we are capable of accepting tax deductible contributions. Hopefully that will be sometime in early 2016.

Clean water is a necessity of life. But it's actually become one of the most precious resources in the 21st century. In fact, one in nine people live without access to clean, drinkable water. We work tirelessly to help bring clean and safe water to people in developing countries.
