Ryan Hreljac was 6 years old when he started raising money to build a well in Uganda after hearing from his teacher about how hard it is to get clean water in Africa. Ryan persuaded his parents to pay him to do extra chores and finally came up with the $70 he thought was needed to drill a well. He eventually raised $2,000 toward a well drilled beside Angolo Primary School in northern Uganda.

Since that first well was dug in Uganda in 1999, Ryan’s Well has supported projects in 16 countries around the world.
