Houston filmmaker Jacob Calle – a zoologist and wildlife conservationist who has been performing conservation research in Africa on rhinos, pangolins, and large cats – is now going back to his original roots from his connection with Africa. He desires to help spread awareness and raise funds to repair broken water wells in Malawi for Child Legacy International.
In the summer of 2012 Calle traveled to Malawi with Child Legacy’s Clean Water Climb team to participate in not only repairing water wells, but also vaccinating mothers and children with local doctors during health care examinations. He saw the poverty. He saw the need. He saw the joy of the people when their clean water source was restored. During these uncertain times with Covid-19, it’s imperative that these villages have clean water to keep sanitized and it can’t be done without the Clean Water Climb.
Due to the current situation, Jacob will make a pledge to ride his bicycle over 500 miles from Houston, Texas alone to the Ozark Mountains in Arkansas to celebrate those villages that are able to thrive through Covid-19.
He’s chosen the Ozark Mountains due to its fresh springs and it’s harmonious rivers of clean water that feed through the mountains that give life to the local flora and fauna including bear, mountain lion, caribou, and many small animals.
Jacob will be paying all of his own trip expenses so all funds raised goes directly to the well repairs performed by local Malawian people. He will also be camping along the way on his 10-12 day journey in his tent on camping grounds or where necessary. One water repair costs $1,250 which will clean water to approximately 2,000 people. If one water well can be accomplished by the end of this adventure it will be because of you who donated to ensure the health of Malawi.
On July 14th, Jacob will begin his trek starting from downtown Houston and riding up US Highway 59 north all the way to the mountains of Arkansas. If you’re interested in his journey you’ll be able to follow him on at @jacobcalle on Instagram to see how far he’s accomplished on this long journey.
Please help Jacob reach his goal to bring clean water to an entire village or approximately 2000 people! Every dollar counts!
