Greetings to all,
Please excuse me for the great delay in writing this update to all our followers. I want to thank each and every supporter of WPI and all that you have done to help us move forward with our projects.
Since this past summer, WPI has unfortunately seen a great drop in support for our efforts in Peru and Haiti. We have not been able to pursue further projects due to lack in funding and this has made things difficult back at home as well. Due to lack of project work I feel that it is only right that I have a job outside of the organization that pays for my living expenses instead of WPI paying for my salary since we are not currently active with projects.
So around the middle of the summer I began work at a local farm here in Georgia. All funding that WPI has received in the past few months and into the future is being put into savings so as to provide sufficient funds to give us our big push in the future when we go back active with clean water projects.
I contribute our decrease in funding on the current economy and understand that right now more and more people are saving their money, not spending it. With this fact at WPI we have decided to postpone future projects because we do not feel that we will be able to sustain our efforts until the economy turns around and we are receiving more donations from the general public. This is very difficult news for us to relay to our followers, but it is a necessary one.
Once again, please excuse the tardiness in writing this update. We hope that you will continue to follow what WPI is doing and that you understand the position that we are currently in. We hope that after some time of regrouping our ideas, funding, and tactics for moving forward that we will once again be able to continue new projects in Peru bringing clean water to those who have none.
All monies that are still coming in specifically for Haiti are directly going to the filter factory to provide ceramic water filters to the most needy in the earthquake affected areas.
Once again I want to thank all our followers for your support and prayers. Right now is a difficult time for so many Non Profit Organizations throughout the world and we appreciate your support so much.
