Toronto District Christian High


Take one fish tank, fill with dirty water. Ask fellow students to toss in 50 cents in exchange for a “mud cake” brownie. Tell them about the water problem. Repeat…

The result is an inspiring story of how creative thinking makes a huge difference.

Shelby said, “This project started with two girls wanting to help but finished with a whole school contributing to what we feel is a very helpful, compassionate cause.”

Read Shelby’s letter (.pdf) about how they made such a big impact in Uthini (and on us!).

Katie’s 9th Birthday Party


1 giant cup of generosity…

Katie and friends decided that instead of birthday presents for Katie, they’d give water.

Yeah Katie! (and McKenna, Kendall, Avery, Ridge, Gabriel, Alexandra, Breighana, Erica, Lucy and Kaiya)…and Happy Birthday from all of us. Mom said, “This was a great lesson for us all, and inspired many to give of our resources to help those without.”

Forest United Methodist Church – VBS


During their recent Vacation Bible School this past summer, entitled “Take the plunge – Make a splash with Jesus”, the congregation’s children and their guests collected change for The Water Project. They collected 62.5 pounds of change! That’s enough to repair an entire well in Zambia.

The children and parents of Forest United Methodist Church in Ohio are our heros because they believed that every drop counts…and then made a huge splash.

Balmoral Hall School for Girls – Grade 5


According to one of the girls parents, “These girls, along with their classmates learned about drinking water standards, water consumption, laws that protect water, threats to our water and global solutions to conserve and create sources of drinking water for all.

Through this learning opportunity and their efforts, they raised $137.”

Ms. Bocek’s Grade 5 students are our heroes for getting informed and getting involved. Together with Grace D.’s team they are funding a well repair in Zambia.
