How much does it cost to sponsor a well in Africa or Haiti?

Lifewater Child

The average costs to sponsor various types of water projects in Africa or Haiti are listed below. If you wish to sponsor a well or other project but can't afford to do so by yourself, we will gladly match you with another donor as co-sponsors. We encourage you to work with your co-workers, school, extended family, local church, friends, and neighbours or organize a community fund-raising drive to help reach one of the following sponsorship levels:

Project Sole Sponsor 
Drill a new water well About $5,200

Rehabilitate an existing well, including replacing a broken hand pump and the concrete pump pad

About $1,200
Repair a broken hand pump About $125

Build communal toilets

$3,000 to $4,500
  1. Well prices can vary with well depth, location, and country. Toilet prices can vary by size and complexity of project.
  2. These are average costs at sites selected by local Lifewater workers. It may cost more for a project at a site the sponsor selects if Lifewater is not already working in that area.
  3. If you want to sponsor a well or other project in Africa or Haiti in a community of your choosing, the cost may be at least $1,000 more. For a well with limited public access, the cost is typically at least $3,000 more. 
  4. Villagers actively participate in the work, usually contributing $100 to $300 towards each project through cash payments, supplies, labour, and services.
