Trip Details:

Sender: Global Aid Network (GAiN) Canada
Title:

Benin Vision Trip

Description:

The United Nations has stated that on a global basis “every 90 seconds, a child dies as a result of water-related disease”. This fact is painfully evident in the country of Benin. Water sources are scarce and what is drawn from the sloughs and swamps is most often dirty and filled with disease.

As a result, we saw this need and began drilling water wells in 2004, actively providing clean water to people in the region.

Today, we have provided over 749 productive wells in Benin and 1 in 10 people in Benin drink clean water from a deep-capped well drilled by GAiN.

By providing deep-capped water wells right in the heart of the villages, GAiN is helping to break the cycle of disease and death that devastates much of the developing world.

As we prepare to provide a new well in a community, doors are opened to serve the needs of the community in many ways.

The team will depart Canada and travel to Cotonou, the capital city of Benin. The team will be staying in GAiN accommodations which house both the GAiN Benin office as well as guest quarters.

On this vision trip, you’ll have the unique opportunity to see first-hand the tremendous impact that clean water is having on communities and how the simple gift is changing many lives physically, emotionally and spiritually.  

You’ll meet our dedicated in-country staff and visit local villagers and hear their transformational stories.

This experience will broaden your understanding of the need in Africa and you’ll never look at a glass of clean water in the same way again!
