Ryan's Well
 he Ryan’s Well Foundation grew from the commitment of one boy, Ryan Hreljac, who learned of the great need for clean and safe water in developing countries in his 1st grade class. With the support of friends, family and the community, Ryan raised enough money to build a well in Africa. In 1999, at age seven, Ryan's first well was built at Angolo Primary School in northern Uganda. To this day, the well continues to serve the community.
Although Ryan started raising money for water projects in 1998, the Foundation was not formed until 2001. Since then, Ryan’s Well has helped build over 700 wells and 900 latrines bringing safe water and improved sanitation to over 750,900 people.

Here is a quick glance of what we’re all about:

  • The Ryan’s Well Foundation is a Canadian registered charity (charitable registration # 88858 7110 RR0001)
  • On average, 80-85 cents of every dollar donated directly supports our charitable programs.
  • The Foundation has helped build 713 water projects and 911 latrines  bringing safe water and improved sanitation to 750,991people.
  • Over the years, we've involved over 650 schools in 30 countries in our fundraising activities. Each year, we share our message with over 120,000 people, mainly youth, through various speaking engagements.
Now, the work of Ryan’s Well has become the story of countless people, young and old, from across the world who are inspired to take responsibility and make a difference either in their own communities, or like Ryan, in faraway places. Ryan’s story has made people realize that anyone, even kids in Grade 1, can make a difference.
We work very hard to keep our administrative costs as low as possible. An average of 80-85 cents of every dollar donated directly supports our charitable programs.
Our financial statements are audited annually by McCay Duff LLP Chartered Accountants.
