Need help

Some of you may remember I had written a post about Borewell Deaths in India a while back.

My friend has come up with a plan for starting work on covering up these open pits. I have been roped in to write a brochure for her that she will use to contact people and get them to take action. I have also been assigned to task of naming the project. And I am drawing a blank here :(

Would really appreciate your creativity in coming up with something.

I just had a couple (very boring) names:

"Shut the Death-Traps"
"Borewells: Lets make them green"

Please help!

@RenuDi, I like "Life Guards!"

@Tanu, I pick "Green Wells" from your list..

@xh, hmm...shut the mouth sounds good :)

@ceedy, good one. Yes, it probably needs to be multilingual. But that I suppose will come later..

@suree, welcome to my blog :)
I like "Let us be Well" from your list.

Will pass on these suggestions to my friend and let you all know what she decides upon.

Since this is going to be a project in India, I thought it might be a good idea to have names in Hindi as well as English?
My Hindi isn't very good, so you might have to consult someone else, but something like:

बोर्वेल वृक्षारोपण
(पेड़ लगाओ, शिशु बचाओ)

शिशु रक्षा परियोजना
(पेड़ लगाओ, झिन्दगि बचाओ)

Green borewells
Choose life, plant a tree

Child safety project
Borewells: lets make them green
