Help Us Raise Funds for Sierra Leone

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!

This is Paul, he is a Community Development worker focusing on hygiene and sanitation. He works for Bridge Water Project, one of our partnering NGOs here Kenya. He’s learned how to submit a sanitation survey through his phone. Kenya is leading the way in mobile banking and we want to help Kenya pave the way for mobile monitoring of water points. We can monitor functionality of water points and collect data with a cell phone, airtime, sweat equity and a great mobile monitoring app by mWater. Training is going great and we even had the chance to conduct the first surveys!

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!
