Ask any girl what she’d rather do than walk for water and she’ll share her dreams for school, a career and her contribution (beyond gathering water) to her community. Lack of access to safe water and sanitation is the primary reason girls drop out of school.
Safe water liberates her.
Why is education so important? Women reinvest up to 90 percent of their income back into their own households, compared to 30-40 percent by men. Access to safe water and sanitation allows girls to make their dreams a reality. Your giving makes it happen!
Safe water encourages her.
A water project is not something that happens to a community, it is something that happens with a community. And how it happens matters.
Women are undeniably a key player as both recipient and implementer of the clean water and sanitation systems we provide. When you support The Water Project and give a girl water, your gift also supports her role models – strong leaders like Catherine. When girls see development come to their communities through these women leaders, they know their dreams are possible.
Safe water inspires her.
These water projects are in need of immediate funding to complete.

With water only available from shallow pits today, the Twone Self Help group in central Kenya is already hard at work preparing for their new water project. Your gift will help them complete a sand dam and shallow well that will dramatically transform their community, farms and local economy.
