Q. Where are the wells built, and can I choose the location?
A. We build Tube Wells in Bangladesh, Pakistan, and Where Most Needed, Dig-a-Wells in Mali, Niger, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, and Where Most Needed, as well as Community Wells. You can choose which location you would like your well to be built in. If you are unsure, select the “Where Most Needed” option and let our team of experts pick a location for you, based on current needs.
Q. How does Muslim Hands determine the exact location of the well?
A. We work with a wide range of expert partners who are on the ground in each location. These partners help to carry out periodic assessments, taking a detailed profile of each community and determining their needs. They work with the community leaders to work out what types of wells and how many need to be constructed in each area.
Q. Do I receive feedback, and when?
A. Yes. You will receive personalized ‘feedback reports’ after your well has been completed. These reports will give you more details about the project as well as pictures of the well and information about the beneficiaries.
Q. Does the well come with a plaque?
A. Yes. You can choose to add a name that you would like to appear on the plaque that is installed on the well. If you don’t want to include a name, you can leave this section blank.
Q. How long does it take for the wells to be built?
A. Each type of well has a different construction period, due to the size of the well and seasonal weather changes. Tube Wells usually takes between 6-9 months to build, while Dig-a-Wells and Community Wells can take up to 1 year.
