Mr. Beast who is a prominent figure in the world of digital content creation and philanthropy, has once again used his platform to make a meaningful impact, this time focusing on Africa. In his latest video, Mr Beast builds 100 wells across Africa, addressing one of Africa’s most pressing problems which is access to clean drinking water.
While his efforts have gained attention around the world, it is essential to shed light on his work in Kenya and the broader issue of water scarcity in the country.
Mr Beast’s Journey of Philanthropy
Jimmy Donaldson, known as Mr. Beast, has built a name for himself on YouTube through his extravagant stunts, challenges, and philanthropic initiatives.
He is famous for going big, such as his Squid Games video, and has leveraged his platform to create positive change.
In his most recent video, Mr. Beast takes his philanthropic mission to Africa, where he sets a monumental goal of constructing 100 wells in communities across the continent.
His journey through Africa, including Kenya and Zimbabwe, reveals the dire need for clean drinking water in these regions and the transformative impact it can have on the lives of local residents.
Mr Beast builds 100 wells across Africa: Kenya
One of the first wells built in Mr. Beast’s video is situated in a Kenyan village.
The local people express their gratitude and joy upon gaining access to clean water. The video highlights the stark contrast between the luxury of abundant, clean water in many parts of the world and the daily struggles faced by those in water-scarce regions.
After completing some wells in Kenya, Mr. Beast’s team visits the Niri school system. The students there typically fetch water from the nearby river, which is often unsafe for consumption.
Changing Lives, One Well at a Time
Throughout the video, it is evident that the people in the communities where Mr. Beast and his team build wells are overjoyed and grateful.
The wells are constructed using a large drill that reaches underground water sources, ensuring a sustainable supply of clean water.

In addition to the wells, Mr. Beast donated water tanks to the communities, enabling them to store and use the water as needed.
The Challenge for Change
Mr. Beast’s philanthropic efforts in Kenya and throughout Africa are indeed life-changing for the communities he supports.
However, his statement “Someone’s got to do it” serves as a call to action for all, especially those in positions of power. Access to clean water and other essential services should not depend on the goodwill of individuals like Mr. Beast alone. It is a shared responsibility, and it is high time that governments and authorities take proactive steps to address the water crisis and improve the lives of communities in need.
Mr Beast’s commitment to building 100 wells across Africa is a remarkable example of how digital influencers can use their reach and resources for positive change.
