Water Matters

The latest on our work and those supporting it

When a gift goes beyond giving…

This is an incredible story of generosity, faith and abundance…

Rebekah is a missionary living and serving in Monte Plata, Dominican Republic through Kids Alive, International.  She serves in an orphanage and affiliated school nearby.  As you’ll read in her own words, she understands living in difficult circumstances.  But she also has a beautiful perspective on how all of us have something to give.

Recently she shared with us one of the most inspirational and encouraging stories of generosity we have ever heard.  The efforts of her students to raise money for a well in Africa are both humbling and joy inducing.

We hope you are as moved as we were by what she and her friends in Monte Plata have accomplished.   Giving out of poverty…grace abounds.

Basin Youth Bells

We wanted to say a special thanks to the Basin Youth Bells who raised money for a new well in Kenya back in July of 2009. Darla G. led this group of talented students as they held a benefit concert for The Water Project.

We love it when groups take the initiative to help and use their own unique gifts and abilities to make a difference.

“This group – Bronze Tigers – is one of my performing groups that chose to raise money to benefit children. This is our first project and it opened their eyes and brought them closer together.”

10 Year Old Nate R. Raises $14k for Wells!

We received a note just a few days ago and were simply blown away by the efforts of an amazing young man named Nate.  This past January, Nate raised over $14,000 by organizing a basketball shoot-out at his school.  Amazing!

We’re so inspired when people like Nate hear about the need of clean water, and without any help simply step up, get involved and pull off an amazing fundraiser.

Now, we’ll be doing our part by sending 100% of the money Nate raised to the field, to build wells for schools in Kenya and Sudan, so students just like Nate can do some amazing things themselves!
