Wine to Water – Wondo Ganet, Ethiopia

Nov 2, 2017

Happy Ethiopian Child
Wine to Water Saving lives in Ethiopia

Managing Director, Ed Doughty, just returned from a 12-day trip serving in several remote regions of Ethiopia with Wine To Water, a North Carolina based non-profit that aims to eradicate the global water crisis. While there, he and several other volunteers worked on three separate borehole wells with their local ground partner, Water is Life International and their incredibly hard working crew of locals. They utilized what is known as a percussion-well drilling technique, manually drilling down 21-meters to the aqua-fore and then assembling the actual well pump. Ed also learned about Sustainable Living Teams (SLTs) which are groups of 10-15 women who through financial awareness training are able to save weekly and then make small loans (with interest) to one another to enhance whatever livelihood they already have, or to help start a small business. These teams were extraordinary and their communities were really beginning to thrive. To learn more about this extraordinary organization that is very near and dear to us here at Epic Capital, or to help support their efforts, please visit them at http://winetowater.org
