In December 2010, I had my Bat Mitzvah. As part of my Bat Mitzvah, we are supposed to do a community service project which we truly believe in to help us grow as a person and as a Jewish adult. At first, I had no idea what to do. Because I live in America, when I was thirsty, I would go to the water, fill up my cup, and drink as much as was necessary to quench my taste-buds.I never thought much of it until i though it would be like not to have this privilege.I am doing this project not because it is part of the official process of becoming a Bat Mitzvah, but because it is something I truly believe in!
Did you know nearly 1 billion people don't have safe water to drink?
Together, we can change that. Let's fund a new source of drinking water for those who suffer needlessly without it!
Our gifts will be used to construct or rehabilitate a water project, like a well or sand dam, in Africa. We'll see pictures, GPS coordinates, and updates as they come in from the actual water project we fund so we can celebrate the results along with the community we help.
The Water Project, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization unlocking human potential by providing clean, safe water to communities around the world who suffer needlessly without.
Working with local partners in countries like Kenya, Rwanda, Sierra Leone, South Sudan, and Uganda, we build long lasting water projects that are organized, owned and managed by the communities receiving them.
Together, with our partners we identify, implement, report on and follow up on every project. Then we share the whole story with you to inspire confidence in the work being done and the impact it has.
