Living Well Project

Want to join me in making a difference? I'm raising money to benefit Tiesta Tea Foundation, and any donation will help make an impact. Thanks in advance for your contribution to this cause that means so much to me.

You inspired the Living Well Project. Your favorite teas - our best sellers - contain ingredients from all over the world. Some of our most frequently used ingredients come from farmers in northern Nigeria, and Nigeria is one of the few countries that can produce them because of the hot, dry climate required to grow it. We want to make sure those we rely on most - our farmers - Live Well.
Every time we install a well:
1. The village is consulted and the land is surveyed to make sure that it is put in a high-traffic spot that’s convenient for villagers and where the well can be dug deep to provide enough water.
2. The well is drilled, complete with 5 faucets and a water tower/holding facility with enough water to last the village for two weeks if anything in the well breaks down and needs time for repair.
3. The village celebrates with singing, dancing, and a big party!
From start to finish, the entire process takes roughly 8 weeks.
