What is "fostering?"
To foster means to support a good cause for a longer period, in stead of making a "one-time" donation. The advantage of "fostering" is that the implementing organization can count on a longer commitment for supporting the water project.
In this Foster program, schools in The Netherlands as well as schools in other countries can link with schools in Africa and help them with their water supply.
In the "Foster a BluePump Program", the Fostering school makes a commitment to support the African Foster school for an amount of 2.500 Euro. This can be done over a period of 3 to 6 years.
Every year, on World Water Day on March 23, the donor school can organize activities for fund raising to sponsor "their" Foster School in Africa.
The obvious advantage of the FairWater Foster Program is that the donor school will now know for sure how and where their donation will be used. This includes that in the following years, the donor school will receive on the occasion of World water day, an update about the situation of their water point.
We have a list of over 100 Foster schools in Africa that need urgent water, so lots to do.
