We are gearing up to build a school in Kenya. Because – as we all know – education is the key to well being and conservation. Stay tuned for more news.
We successfully supported the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust. This is the most successful orphan elephant rescue and rehabilitation program in the world.
We built a stone wall to protect the well in Esupetai (because elephants play hard). We also created an overflow trough so wildlife could partake of the bounty.
We built a well in Esupetai. The aquifer we struck has some of the cleanest water in Africa, and will support the surrounding villages for up to 65 more years.
Founded in 2010, The Wellbeing Foundation is a community of caring and committed volunteers. We work together to raise money and put it to use for the benefit of all. When we learned about the Maasai struggle to find drinking water in Esupetai, Kenya, we built a well to sustain them for 65 years. We then turned our attention towards the survival of endangered elephants in the Tsavo National Park of Kenya. Now we are gearing up to build a school in Kenya. Because when the children of Kenya gain a good education, good things happen. Water goes further. Wildlife thrives. Minds grow stronger. Our focus will change with each completed project, but our mission remains the same – to create wellbeing for all. Visit us often and learn how your donation is making the world a better place.

As a mother holds her child in her arms, cuddling him lovingly, she can tell how small, fragile, and defenseless he is – his little body as well as his innocent mind.
