Bart Zandbergen Talks with Nick Jordan, Founder of Wells of Life

Bart Zandbergen Talks with Nick Jordan, Founder of Wells of Life

August 30, 2022

Host Bart Zandbergen was joined in the podcast studio by Scott Heinila of the Optimized Advisor Podcast and Nick Jordan, Founder of Wells of Life. In 2008, Nick Jordan established the nonprofit organization Wells of Life which is dedicated to providing rural Ugandans access to safe, clean water through the installation or restoration of sustainable borehole water wells. He also instituted WASH (water, sanitation, and hygiene) educational programs in order to teach each village about the power of sustainability and sanitation. After installing a well in the Mityana district of Uganda, a little girl, younger than 9, approached Nick and thanked him personally for the water with happiness and an overwhelming sense of gratitude. This experience is what influenced Nick to set a goal to fund and help over 1 million people and build 1000 wells. Today, in 2021, Nick and his organization are working to do just that. Wells of Life has joined forces with a team in both Ireland and Uganda to drill and restore over 700 wells in East Africa. It is with courage, tenacity, and a close relationship with God that Nick has continued to follow the path to serve others. Today, the global water crisis affects 785 million people who lack basic access to clean and safe water. Nick is a firm believer that every drop matters and every second counts. And with one donation from each school, church, and business, we can work to end this crisis as we know it.

 

In this episode learn more about:

- How the gift of water can save lives and create opportunity
- How Wells of Life is creating sustainable change through their organization
- Charity vs. Philanthropy – learn what the key difference is
- The current goals that Wells of Life has and how you can help the organization achieve them

When asked what his “Ultimate Lesson Learned” has been, Nick shared, “Success comes at a price, and persistence is a muscle of great value.”
