Water Matters

The latest on our work and those supporting it

Sanitation training at Nabongo

Our team in Kakamega was out recently with the students at the Nabongo Primary School preparing them for their upcoming well project.

Before a well is constructed, our partners spend time training the community or school in proper sanitation and hygiene.

Teaching why dirty water makes one sick is an important part of the process.


Thanks Datum! We love the furniture.

We want to send out a very special word of thanks to Datum for their very generous donation of new office furniture.

The desks and chairs have made such a difference.  We’ve happily said goodbye to our old sagging folding tables and broken chairs.  And our new filing system (lots more drawers!) makes things so much more efficient around here.

We couldn’t be happier or more comfortable.  Thanks!!!

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.”
