R.C. Crawford and Sam Crawford are founders of ONE MILLION WELLS. R.C. Crawford invented a new method of drilling water wells that is a vast improvement over all other methods of drilling. Because of this invention, millions of lives can be saved. Our goal is to distribute this drilling method free of charge to any group or person that wants to access water. What we do makes life possible in places where no other charity has been successful and where it was impossible to get water in the past.
You can help farmers, ranchers, individuals and families live successfully where they are now struggling to live. People need our drills, and we need you. Without your help, people , animals and plants that are now likely to die, will die. WITH your help, a new life saving technology will become available throughout the world.
More than one third of all charitable donations spent in some countries for water is
All major water charities are at fault as well as the nations that allow this practice to continue.
ONE MILLION WELLS won a "Patents for Humanity Award" for its invention that can help end the problem of charities wasting your money on water points that do not work . ONE MILLION WELLS has invented an award winning tool and has a straight forward and sensible plan to stop the loss of life and the waste of money that is now occurring.
Our plan is to teach people to drill at the lowest level of complexity with our innovative hand drilling tool. They then move up to the next level of complexity and are trained to use a small engine powered drill. We then move them to the small trailer level of drilling and finally to the large truck mounted drill platform. The equipment they first receive is traded for the next level of tool and so on until they reach our final level. We call this the pay it forward method of starting business. In that way, they learn the latest technology at each level, and they become proficient at each level before moving to the next.
Our award winning patent makes it possible to lower the number of failed boreholes that are drilled in Africa. Our technology provides many advantages over those methods that resulted in failed boreholes, assuring boreholes do not fail. The old tools used to drill the failing water points mentioned above were mostly of the direct circulation style. Direct circulation tools limit the depth to which a borehole may be drilled, and in addition the tools plug the aquifer from which water must be abstracted. The tools currently used are not capable of drilling large diameter boreholes or removing large cobbles or gravel from the borehole. Our award winning drilling tool will remove large gravel and drill large diameter boreholes for villages and farms. In addition the old method of drilling cannot clean a borehole properly of cuttings. Our method cleans the borehole as it drills.
As you can see we have the perfect plan for training drillers and furnishing them with the newest technology to drill by hand or by engine power. All we need is for you to help us get this vital program in use by donating to our tax exempt US 501c3 charity.
MISSION OF ONE MILLION WELLS
OUR MISSION IS DIFFERENT. WE ARE A CHARITY THAT FURNISHES OTHER CHARITIES AS WELL AS INDIVIDUALS WITH NEW TECHNOLOGY THAT WILL MAKE ACCESS TO WATER AVAILABLE TO ALL AND WILL CREATE NEW JOBS AND WEALTH IN THE COUNTRIES WHERE WE WORK.
YOUR CHARITABLE DONATION FUNDS DRILLS FREE OF ALL COSTS. WE FURNISH A DRILL RIG AT A LOWER COST THAN OTHER CHARITIES CAN FURNISH A WELL. A PERSON CAN OWN THE DRILL AND DRILL MULTIPLE WELLS FOR THE SAME OUTLAY OF MONEY AS THE COST OF ONE WELL BY OTHER CHARITIES. YOUR DOLLARS ARE USED MOST EFFICIENTLY BY OUR CHARITY.
YOUR DONATION ENDS POVERTY BY FURNISHING JOB TRAINING AND EQUIPMENT FOR FUTURE ENTREPRENEURS
PAY IT FORWARD
Another purpose of our charity is to make actual progress in bringing countries and people out of poverty. We have devised a way to encourage those individuals that need help to step up and help themselves and others by starting their own well drilling businesses.
We call our method "Pay It Forward" . Basically the program furnishes free hand drilling tools. After training in the hand drilling method, the driller is offered a mini hydraulically powered unit and then can progress to larger and more complicated equipment.
Another goal is to build some equipment in each driller's home country and have other equipment imported. This would provide employment for other lines of work.
In addition to our own program, we will be using all the financial suggestions of UNICEF. https://www.unicef.org/wash/files/02.pdf
A WINNER OF THE PATENTS FOR HUMANITY AWARD
We won the Patents for Humanity Award for our humanitarian water well drilling tool. Our hydraulic top drive drilling tool is the only drill in the world that can drill with all drilling methods, with steel or PVC drill stem, making us the BEST WATER CHARITY IN THE WORLD. We are the only water charity that can drill with one rig either direct circulation, reverse circulation or with a DTH , drag or roller bit . Our hand drilling tool is the only combination reverse flow and direct circulation drill available in the world.
