Leadership (GuideStar ExchangeThe GuideStar Exchange allows nonprofits to regularly update key information directly to GuideStar. It provides richer and broader information about their programs, impact, finances, people and more. March, 2014)

Ms. Barbara Goldberg

Profile:

Barbara founded Responsive Research, Inc. and had a very fulfilling 30-year advertising and marketing career on Madison Avenue.  In 1993, she founded Salon Forum to bring women together for monthly events that support personal enrichment and connection. There are now over 800 members. In March of 2008, Barbara and women from Salon Forum were inspired by speaker Gil Garcetti to start Wells Bring Hope.  In 2009, she and five other women went to Niger, a life-changing experience.

Leadership Statement:

I founded Wells Bring Hope in March 2008, along with a group of women who heard former L.A. County District Attorney Gil Garcetti speak about the dire need for safe water in West Africa and the plight of women and girls who walk miles every day to find water, water that often causes death and disease.  What he said touched our hearts and we decided to do something.  We were supported by friends and family, a grass roots organization that has grown to include not only women and men, but volunteers of all ages, dedicated to this cause. A former marketing consultant for Fortune 500 companies, I now devote 100% of my time to Wells Bring Hope as a volunteer.

Program Description:

Wells Bring Hope partners with World Vision, Inc. to build wells that provide clean, safe water to rural villages in Niger, West Africa.  We continue working with a village for 15-20 years after a well is drilled to educate villagers on good sanitation and hygiene and maintenance of their well. Girls who, before the well was drilled, walked 4-6 miles every day to fetch water can now attend school. We also provide micro-financing to the women of the village to start small businesses.

Impact Summary from the Nonprofit Additional Information A Charting Impact Report consists of an organization’s responses to the five questions. Helping validate this self-reported data are three reviews. Once an organization has used the online interface to complete its report, its responses will produce a document with a unique URL that will be shared on this website, on your GuideStar profile, on the reports of charities participating in BBB Wise Giving Alliance evaluations, and – in the future – with other websites and information sources about nonprofits. We encourage organizations to use this URL to share their report on their own website and through their own media channels. Participants will receive guidance about promoting their Charting Impact Report, along with other benefits, once they publish their report.

Drill a well 300 feet into the ground and lives are transformed instantly! Childhood mortality drops by 70%, water-borne diseases are virtually eliminated, and education becomes a reality for girls. There is hope for their future.  Our partner, World Vision, continues to work with every village for 15+ years.  Villagers are educated on sanitation and hygiene and are also taught skills like drip farming. Women receive microfinance tools and education so that they can start small business and contribute to the family income. Finally, we ensure that every well is sustainable by teaching villagers how to maintain it and requiring that everyone contribute a small amount to a well maintenance fund.
