Every day in rural communities and poor urban centers throughout sub-Saharan Africa, hundreds of millions of people suffer from a lack of access to clean, safe water.
Nearly 1 billion people suffer needlessly without access to safe water. We're convinced this can change - one village at a time. It's incredibly important work. We need your help.
Through your support we invest in proven partners who are drilling fresh water wells and other water projects providing sanitation and hygiene training and constructing other sustainable water projects.
We show every donor the specific impact of their gifts through photos, short stories and GPS map coordinates of every project.
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?
When students are freed from gathering water, they return to class. With proper and safe latrines, girls stay in school through their teenage years.
Safe water, clean hands, healthy bodies. Time lost to sickness is reduced and people can get back to the work of lifting themselves out of poverty.
Access to water leads to food security. With less crop loss, hunger is reduced. Schools can feed students with gardens, reducing costs.
Access to water can break the cycle of poverty. The communities we serve are ready to grow. We can't wait to see how they choose to do it.
