    This perk will directly change the life of a farmer in Niger by covering the construction and delivery of one current pump. We want to make sure that you know whose life you've changed by giving you a booklet with the picture and biography of the specific farmer who received the current pump you paid for. Throughout the year, we will send you updates on the farmer and his or her family to remind you of the impact you have funded.

    Come with us to Niger! As we put in our first round of current pumps, you'll get to see things in action! We will have a documentarian with us filming the whole experience and you will be in a documentary! It's one thing to change lives through your gift. It's a whole other thing to experience, in person, the change you've paid for! This gift will pay for your airfare, lodging and meals and give you a face-to-face encounter with the people you've helped! (email for more info)
