About Wealthy Well
This documentary is about the great wealth change in a village after a water well is built and the simple acts of fundraising that can cause this.
Wealthy Well explores the impact that access to clean water has on education, health, hygiene and women empowerment.
With so much attention on the problem, we dive straight into the solution! Simple acts of fundraising can make a tangible impact on the world. We follow fundraisers of all ages and ethnicites as they come together for the cause of clean water and helping people they may never meet. It's a pay-it-forward film full of heart and hope!
The Personal Why?
Meisha Lee - Director's Story
It all started when I saw an image of women collecting water from a filthy waterhole with cows standing in it! I was changed forever and I couldn't unsee it. But what could one person do? I made a promise to myself that I would try to do SOMETHING. Something was better than nothing. I started saving and fundraising for wells. With the help of my friends, family (and even strangers) donating $10 at a time, we raised money over the years to build 7 wells. These wells now give clean water to over 4000 people in Ghana, Uganda, Central Africa Republic, Haiti and India.
When clean water is accessible, communities are given a chance to THRIVE.
I know this story doesn't end with my community contributing ... it's just the beginning!
This documentary will show how easy it is to do our part. When thousands of people realize they can be part of the solution and come together to give $10, then we will solve the need and make a great change to our world.
Please partner in with me, because where we were born should not dictate whether we have access to clean water.
