Having lived in the Central African Republic most of his life, Jim knew there were two solvable problems wreaking havoc on the people living in the impoverished country: not knowing about the love of Jesus Christ and not having access to sustainable clean water.

From the beginning, Jim’s vision for Water for Good was to not only drill wells but to hire a local team that would provide regular well maintenance. Through establishing a maintenance team and program, Water for Good is becoming a common household name in the Central African Republic. In 2020 alone, almost a million people are receiving clean water with over 1,800 wells being checked on by the maintenance team.

In honor of Jim’s commitment to the Central African Republic, we are establishing a special fund to ensure that the water continues to run for years to come. The Hocking Legacy Fund is a non-permanent endowment fund, with the purpose of providing sustainable rural water programs to the people of the Central African Republic. The goal is to raise $1,000,000, with the annual distribution starting when $500,000 has been raised.

One Drop of Water

Through his book, One Drop of Water, Jim shares the journey God has brought him on to provide clean water to the second poorest country in the world. If you have not had the chance to read his book, please consider purchasing one today. All profits will go towards keeping the clean water flowing through the maintenance program.

Any and all donations to the Hocking Legacy Fund will provide sustainable rural water delivery in the Central African Republic. Don’t worry, Jim is alive and well, but the need for continual maintenance support is great. This fund is set up to honor one of Jim’s great accomplishments, the maintenance program.
