In a world where influencers often make headlines for controversial reasons, it’s refreshing to see someone use their platform to make a truly impactful change in the world. Recently, the YouTube star Mr. Beast shared a video showcasing a project in which he funded the construction of 100 water wells in Africa. Mr. Beast’s remarkable act of generosity will not only benefit tens of thousands of people for years to come: it is also shedding light on the critical issue of water scarcity in many parts of Africa.

We take clean water for granted here in the United States, where the nearest source of clean water is typically no further away than the nearest kitchen sink or refrigerator. This is not so for more than 200 million people in sub-Saharan Africa. Untold numbers of people in this part of the world, especially in rural communities, subsist on water gathered from nearby lakes, rivers, ponds, or simply from holes in the ground that collect rainwater. These water sources are unprotected from contaminants, including human, animal and industrial waste. Because of this, sub-Saharan Africa suffers some of the highest rates of waterborne diseases – including diarrhea, cholera, typhoid and dysentery – in the world. Studies show a lack of clean water is linked closely with high child mortality rates, shorter life spans, lower school graduation rates, less food production, and less prosperous local economies.

The good news: building water wells can virtually eliminate all of these problems!

Unfortunately, building a well takes lots of hard work, heavy machinery and money: things that are often in short supply in less-prosperous areas of the world like Kenya, Tanzania, Cameroon and Chad. But it’s an investment with a truly inspirational impact! With a reliable water source, individuals can improve their health, sanitation, and overall quality of life. Children – especially young girls – can attend school regularly instead of spending hours fetching water, and communities can focus on agricultural production and economic activities, fostering growth and development.
