Amman Imman: Water is Life brings water and hope to the Azawak of West Africa, the organization’s vision has blossomed. Amman Imman plan on creating fifty or more “Oases of Life” across the Azawak. Life there begins and ends with water or the lack thereof. With Amman Imman’s construction of water-bearing boreholes all other forms of development can sprout (such as schools, health clinics, opportunities for commerce, appropriate agricultural and livestock technologies and environmental protection programs). Furthermore, through the provision of sustainable and permanent water sources, Amman Imman will continue saving thousands of lives and providing hope to the half-million people of the Azawak region. Once Amman Imman is successful in planting firmly rooted oases of life throughout the Azawak, it will seek out other abandoned and extremely vulnerable populations of the world to help establish stability, life, and hope in these communities.
Water is Life, I invite you and your family to the 8th annual A Walk for Water, a global service event on Saturday, May 10th at the Locust Grove Nature Center, just steps from the Montgomery Mall in Bethesda, Maryland.
A Walk for Water supports Amman Imman’s activities to drill deep wells and provide sustainable development for indigenous communities in West Africa.
This is a great family event and a perfect way to teach your children, family and friends about water scarcity, which is a growing global issue. In the Azawak region of Niger and Mali, children walk 35 miles to bring water home to their families. At A Walk for Water, students and families will walk 3 miles in solidarity with the children of the Azawak.
Pre-Register Online Today, and help raise funds! For every $25 raised by April 30, your name will be entered into a drawing to win a Kindle Fire (must be present to win). Registration rates will be higher for onsite registration.
A Walk for Water includes an interactive pre-walk festival highlighting the nomadic cultures of the Azawak, aimed at educating students as global citizens with live music from West Africa, hands-on activities for all ages, and cultural demonstrations.
