You made it possible! Your generosity inspires us! This week construction of a new water project is set to begin. The scope of work and schematic drawing give the nuts and bolts but not the human impact. Follow along to see the progress from delivery of supplies to digging trenches where PVC pipes will be laid to the faces of the children and families that will be able to turn on a spigot — that’s close to home — and get as much clean water as they want. You made this possible. Thank you!
Austin, Texas - July 2, 2019 - Austin Ear Nose and Throat Clinic are the presenting sponsor of the Water Hero Kids K at the thirteenth annual Run For The Water. A uniquely transformative event, every entry to Run For The Water allows the Gazelle Foundation to provide a person in Burundi with access to clean water – for life. The Water Hero Kids K is a fun way for kids to be active and gain a deeper understanding of water scarcity, consumption, and their role and ability to be engaged, global citizens.
We’ve got exciting news! Thanks to the hardworking National Junior Honor Society students at St. Theresa’s Catholic School in Austin, Texas. They raised over $4,500 to fund clean water. Which means kids in Burundi won’t have to worry about where they will wash their hands, or get a drink of water. St. Theresa’s Catholic School — your generosity inspires us!
Read how longtime Gazelle Foundation supporters Kim and Bernd combined their passion for running with their passion for philanthropy. They trained for Paris Marathon, and raised money to bring clean water to school children in Burundi. Now they want to challenge you!
This year, during our training for the Paris marathon, we found a new way to focus on being joyful and grateful – we counted every mile we ran in training and committed to donating $1 per mile to others less fortunate than us. The charity of our choice was the Gazelle Foundation for water. —Kim and Bernd
Clean water decreases disease rate by 80%. It puts children back into the classroom by giving them time for education. It allows a village to focus on building a future, earning a living, spending time with family—not searching for water.
