Clean Water for All Through the Work of Ryan’s Well Foundation

GreenTalk Radio host Sean Daily speaks with Ryan Hreljac, of Ryan’s Well. At the age of 6, he began his active life of advocacy for water-poor communities in 1998 when he determinedly focused his sights on building a single well for a dry village in Africa.

The story touched hearts and launched an avalanche of media reports, films, inspirational book chapters, and speaking requests that resulted in more donations and attention to water issues than he could have imagined. In 2001, with support of family and other volunteers, Ryan established the Ryan’s Well Foundation, a registered Canadian charity that helps build wells, educates children about water and sanitation, and motivates people of all ages and backgrounds to perform their own “power of one” miracles.
