The Last Well, an African charity, released a blog discussing the top reasons to sponsor a village in Africa. Charitable sponsorships can have a lasting impact on communities that desperately need financial support.
Many communities in Africa are stuck in a cycle of disease and poverty. Men and women in these areas work hard and receive little compensation in return. They may lack access to clean drinking water and enough food to satisfy their families. These difficulties can result in malnourished children and expose them to other diseases. Children are often unable to go to school because they must help their families work, and the education they receive if they are lucky enough to go to school can be lacking. Providing a village sponsorship can help ease some of these problems.
Sponsoring a village positively affects the men, women, and children living in the community. Your donations can provide clean water to the entire community by supporting the purchase of water filtration systems. They can also help create better educational opportunities, which in turn teach valuable skills that can allow children to receive better jobs and give back to their communities. Sponsorships can go towards establishing health clinics and outreach efforts that teach sanitation, hygiene, and other behaviors that can limit the spread of disease. Finally, your village sponsorship can help create a safer community by helping to provide people with adequate resources and allow them to escape poverty. Each of these types of sponsorship can help families lift themselves up and create better lives for the future.

The Last Well has undertaken the ambitious goal of providing clean drinking water to every community in Liberia, which has suffered greatly due to a long civil war, by the end of 2020.
