Young Sisters Make $650,000 Selling Origami And Use It To Build Wells All Over The World

Two young sisters have developed an incredible skill of folding origami at an extremely young age, and are actually selling the pieces that they make, and using that money to build drinking wells all over the world.

So far, the girls have raised over $650,000 and have been able to open 70 new wells in various different regions, including Africa, India, Mexico, Peru, and the U.S.

In 2011, 5-year-old Katherine Adams and her 8-year-old sister, Isabelle, learned some time ago about the struggle that people in various places across the world have with getting simple necessities like water.

To help with this struggle, the girls set out to raise money with their origami skills, to build wells in places where water access was minimal. With the first donations that they received they were able to build a well in Ethiopia, and they have continued to work on their project for the past four years.

Now at ages 9 and 11, the girls now own an organization called “Paper for Water,” which has turned their operation into an entirely professional non-profit that has been able to make an impact on a global scale.

“If everyone in this world helps a little, it all adds up to a lot. Folding origami is an easy way for people of any age to help change the world,” Isabelle told Good News Network.

“It’s fun and it’s social and it’s a good way to use your brain to help other people,” Katherine said.

Paper for Water can be found online at Facebook, and their origami can be purchased through the linked website.
