MAKE THE
WATER PROMISE

Niragire - Farmer, discussing her newly donated water project in Rwanda

Everyone in this community was used to fetching water from swamps. You would see people wandering in swamps in the evening. This well will stop us from collecting water that way. Swamp water has never been clean, but we were using it anyway, because we had no other option. It feels good to have clean water. We did not expect this to happen!

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!

"It has taken some time to get this well fixed. It has spoiled many times. Hopefully now we will have a good water source that will last."

We asked for help many times over, but we received none – until today! Because of you, we have received grace in our village.

Truly the teachers of the children are very happy, along with the children, and all the population of Wan. May God accompany you and bless you. Thank you!

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

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!

Akankwasa - Farmer, discussing her newly donated water project in Uganda

Our previous water source, a hand dug pond, had dirty water and would dry up during the dry season. Consequently, we were walking long distances hunting for water. My wife and young children have been relieved from the burden of walking long distances hunting for insecure water.

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?
