The twenty young men of The Bridge Golf Foundation have set a big goal for themselves. As a part of our service learning program, we are working to raise $45,000 to bring clean water to three rural villages in Zambia. We have teamed up with LPGA Hall of Famer Betsy King and Golf Fore Africa to bring clean water, improved sanitation and hygiene to three rural villages in Zambia. Throughout the year we will be learning about the global water crisis and working to raise money to drill wells.

Why Water:

WATER SHOULD GIVE LIFE, NOT TAKE IT!

Dirty disease-ridden water robs a child of more than the time it takes to collect it. It can steal their education, their health and even their life.

Every day, nearly 1,000 children younger than five-years-old die from diarrhea caused by contaminated water, poor sanitation, and unsafe hygiene practices. And women and children in sub-Saharan Africa spend over 20 million hours collecting water every day.

$50 can bring clean water to a new person for a generation. 

We need your help to change lives!

 * The Bridge Golf Foundation is using the game of golf to improve life outcomes for young men of color in Harlem. Blending golf with STEM learning, mentoring, and character education, we believe our young men can close gaps in achievement, learning, and opportunity. This year they have added Service Learning to their afterschool program. They are partnering with Golf Fore Africa to educate the students and the global water crisis and what they can do to make a difference.
