How does Clear Blue decide which projects to sponsor?
There is a project proposal form that leaders complete for potential locations. Once we establish 1) legitimate need, 2) suitability of the project location, 3) a local reliable project manager, and 4) reliable estimates, we raise money for the project and it is funded.
Many groups and individuals like to sponsor specific wells. That is appreciated and reasonable. However, gifts that are not specifically directed to a single project are vital, too. Very occasionally a borehole will have salty or bitter water and be unusable, but it still incurs expenses. Also, there are projects that are much larger than a single organization can easily provide.
How much of the money (%) will actually go to the completion of the wells?
We have a higher percentage of money going directly to the field than almost any organization. Less than 13 % goes to fundraising and handling costs. Most all of the USA work is done by volunteers. We have grown so much that 2013 is the first year that we have one paid part-time staff member to keep up with our communications and assist in fundraising.
Can we receive information of the progress made in well placement?
Yes. We'll be glad to send pictures of the wells that have been drilled wherever possible and requested. Please remember that our water projects are done in areas where the basics of life are often unavailable. Many of the locations will have pictures posted on the website as they become available.
