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!


Help Us Raise Funds for Sierra Leone

girls in water

Ebola has been a tragic reality for the people of Sierra Leone over the last year. In the middle of this, we’ve remained more committed than ever to the people of Sierra Leone through a service and support program that focuses on keeping water flowing at approximately 100 previously installed projects. We’re also providing new water access for communities- made possible because of your support. Our partner and teams (Mariatu’s Hope) have been brave and selfless – and we are so proud of them.

Now, the N’Baimbaya community has requested your help.  238 people, 120 of whom are children, believe their future doesn’t have to be drinking from a swamp. Our teams are currently working with the community to develop a WaSH Committee and have commented on the undeniable hope they find in the initiative and cooperation from this community. Now it’s your turn.

Let’s stand with them and make a new water well a reality!

Boda Boda Traveling in Kenya


The work we do at The Water Project isn’t easy, but your support does help greatly and makes a big impact. Every bit helps. We couldn’t do our jobs efficiently if it wasn’t for the boda boda drivers that take us from site to site on narrow rural roads that are impossible to pass with a car. We really love the saying on the front of this boda boda. “Never Give Up.” It seems to sum up our feelings about clean water perfectly!

A New Well for St Emmanuel Church


St Emmanuel Kapng’etuny Church in Kenya was getting their water  from gravity piped water from Kipkaren Township Water project. The dam is located 1.5km away from the church compound. The water was turbid and wasn’t receiving any treatment before being released to the community hence, the water was only good for animals to drink and irrigation purposes.
