WALKING FOR A MISSION
Zakat Foundation of America (ZF) is based upon the idea of easing the needs of poor communities and establishing development projects for communities to ensure sustainable living.
Most think of water wells of just providing drinking water….it’s actually a lot more than that. It helps a community in providing clean water for their crops and to get rid of many dirty water borne diseases. Diseases from dirty water kill more people every year than all forms of violence, including war. Many kids can’t go to school because they have to walk miles to get clean water for their families. A water well helps solve issues of hunger, health, poverty and education.
In response to this global issue, ZF continues to install water wells and hand pumps to communities deprived of fresh sources of water.
ZF’s Mission is to Provide Clean Water Globally. Since the water well program began, ZF has constructed over 300 water wells and hand pumps in Central Asia and the African continent serving over 1.4 million people.
In the summer of 2018, the ZFNC 101 Wells Team was formed. The group consists of youth (as young as 5 years) and adults who wanted to create awareness of the need for clean water and to build 101 water pumps around the world.
The 101 Wells Team wants to involve the community at large, to help reach their goal and invites local schools, businesses and various groups to help build 101 hand pumps/wells by December 2018 : $50,500.
Through ZF, you can build a hand pump for $500 &/or a water well for $3000.
