Amman Imman is dedicated to improving and saving lives among the poorest and most abandoned populations of the world, currently by supplying permanent sources of water in the Azawak of West Africa.
"Water is Life." This statement holds a particular significance for the people of the Azawak Valley of West Africa. These populations of formerly nomadic herders live in an area of the world where it is a daily struggle to find even a drop of water for nine to eleven months of the year.
Amman Imman: Water is Life, a 501(c)3 organization, has developed the following objective: to build oases of life for the half million people surviving in the Azawak of West Africa. To achieve this goal, Amman Imman is committed to building borehole-wells that offer the Azawak people a healthy and abundant water source throughout the year. Amman Imman also supports local community development to improve lives, including food, agriculture, health, education, economic and women's empowerment activities.
Through its service learning program, Wells of Love, Amman Imman works with students of all ages empowering them as compassionate global citizens who are taking the lead in helping some of the most vulnerable people in the world. Students learn about crucial global issues, connect with indigenous cultures, gain leadership skills, experience philanthropy by participating in creative activities that raise funds, while helping the people of the Azawak gain access to the most basic of necessities. To date, over 100 schools have participated in our program.
