Nick Jordan was born and raised on a farm with his family in County Wexford, Ireland. In 1986, he left home and immigrated to the United States. For the next decade, he worked tirelessly to become a real estate broker and build his own company. While doing so, Nick was able to raise funding to build four schools in East Africa. In his visit to three African countries, though, he quickly realized the devastation due to the lack of clean running water. By 2008, Nick Jordan established the nonprofit organization called Wells of Life: dedicated to provide rural Ugandans access to safe, clean water through the installation or restoration of sustainable borehole water wells. Since then he has led this organization to build and restore over 1,200 wells, serving more than 1.2 Million people. His heart and passion for this work are apparent from the moment you meet him. He continues to dedicate his life to serving rural Ugandans with access to clean water in Jesus' name.
