We show every donor, every project and every outcome - every time.

Installing new water projects is important, but monitoring those projects over time even more so. We believe water projects working today should work in the future. And you can see it all here.

OctoberfeAst 2009

“Come to OktoberfeAst!  Drink, give, rejoice, and help us build a well!”

That’s how the invite read when a non-profit group in California decided to step-up and do something they’d never done before for people they’ve never met.

Over 150 people, 65 pounds of Bratwurst, and one polka band were just the beginning of a great day of giving this past November.  Together they raised $5,300 for clean water!

Now…in just a few months, well drillers will begin constructing the first of two wells that Who Will We Will and friends funded in Sudan. Thanks for all your…ahem…hard work. 😉

Well in India – Sirumayangudi

This new well serves a village of about 650 people, mostly agricultural laborers.   Before this well was installed they did not have a protected source of water.  The well in use was unreliable and filled with garbage (you can see pictures of it below).  Today, thanks to the generosity of individual donors to The Water Project, these families are enjoying clean and safe drinking water.

Our implementing partner noted about their visit,

“Arriving at this place and experiencing the fireworks and the celebration was a tad overwhelming but when you consider what they had previously to what exists now, it’s no wonder they were excited to have us and show off their new water source.”

Notre Dame Students “Totter for Water”

totter 3 adults also!In order to fundraise for the Global Water Initiative, Howard Hall at the University of Notre Dame decided to host a 24 hour teeter totter marathon. Totter for Water stationed a teeter totter right on South Quad and had people see-saw for 24 hours straight!

The hall’s female residents, nicknamed the “ducks”, hosted a kickoff party where dorm mascots from all over campus came to ride the totter. Food and music always add up to a good time.

People walking by were encouraged to both donate to the cause and relive their childhood memories by riding the teeter totter. Over 270 people rode the totter. From on-site and online donations we raised a total of $2,331.03. That translates as 233 people who now have access to clean water for 10 years. Well, you know what they say, ducks love water!!

EVA MARRIE GIRLS SCHOOL

Over 1,500 girls attend the Eva Marrie Girls School in Perambalur, India.  The shear size of the school magnified the lack of access to water.  Before this well and distribution systems were constructed,  the school children would have to leave the grounds to access public taps or they would use a small amount of water which the school was forced to pay for from a “water cart”.  Improving access to water means more time in class, less danger traveling outside of school grounds and far better access to proper sanitation, a huge issue for a girls school.
