THE
WATER PROMISE



Esther - Nurse, discussing her newly donated water project in Uganda


For the past six years, as a practicing nurse in this community, I have been treating many community members for sanitation and water related diseases – mainly typhoid, dysentery and diarrhea. This I largely attribute to unsafe water sources... We thank you for this new well. This will go a long way in reducing the disease prevalence among the people in this community!

Thank you for this well. I think the number of people suffering from such
diseases will reduce significantly.

We would have to go down to the stream to get water and it was visibly unclean. There were many activities happening upstream and we were downstream fetching the same water. It will be so different with this new well.

The old water source was like poison to us. The water was not only dirty, but was also heavily contaminated because it was an open water source... We are now boasting about having access to good water!

Finally, a new well was installed in our community! Thank you for providing us with this safe water. We will no longer walk long distances hunting for water from hand dug wells and dams.

What I have seen today went straight to my heart. You have changed everything with this
pump. I, and our village, am full of joy.

I am very moved and at a loss of words strong enough to communicate our feelings. The parents of the school children would like to extend their thanks. I think that this will be like a new school year for all of the students and all the teachers, with this rehabilitation. It will be a pleasure for everyone during the academic year ahead. We thank you!

With this new well, it is a relief. The impact of having good water will not only be felt by this community, but also by neighboring communities and passers-by.

We provide wells and other water projects for communities around the world who
suffer needlessly from a lack of access to clean water and proper sanitation.

Help Fund a Water Project

Donate a fresh water well to a third world country
  1. Through your support we invest in proven partners who are drilling fresh water wells, providing sanitation and hygiene training and constructing other sustainable water projects.

  2. We show every donor the specific impact of their gifts through photos, short stories and GPS map coordinates of every project.

  3. We follow up, monitor and evaluate the projects you support to help ensure our shared work has a long-term impact.

We believe that every supporter can be part of the story of water by learning, acting, giving and then seeing the difference they make.

We're looking for willing hands...are you ready?
