Kankalay Primary School in Sierra Leone has too many reminders of Ebola. The Water Project completed a water and sanitation project here in 2011, and the photo you see above is of the toilets installed for the school. When Ebola was at it’s worse, this whole area became a treatment center.

If you look closely you’ll see where medical equipment and linens infected with Ebola were burned against the building. Students are still using these facilities, and the accompanying water well is providing safe water – thanks to your support! (more…)

Theatre for the World


This post comes to us from Brian Schultz, creator of Theatre for the World.

There are many people who have inspired me over the years, but if you are looking for someone famous who led me on the path to give back it is the late, great Harry Chapin.  I loved his music, and still do, but even more so, I loved his passion to use his gift to make this world a better place.

You Make This Possible!


Safe water empowers the Girl Child.
You make it possible.

maybe profile

Ask any girl what she would rather be doing than walking 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.

They call her Girl Child.
Because of your support, we call her Leader.

A water project is not something that happens to a community, it happens with a community.

At The Water Project, women are undeniably a key player as both recipient and implementer of clean water and sanitation systems. When you support The Water Project and give a girl water, your gift also supports her role models – strong leaders like Catherine, seen in this video. Because of your contributions, girls see development come to their communities through women leaders, and know their dreams are possible.

Safe water inspires her.
You unlock her potential.

We have 44 communities waiting for water. Get involved and make clean water a reality!
