Help Fund a Water Project

Together, we can unlock potential in a developing community by providing clean, safe water.

It began with Aubrey (age 4) asking:

"Mamma, where does water come from?" After an in depth explanation about the water cycle that spanned several days, lead to several new questions, and added many new words to her vocabulary she finally seemed satisfied. Then a few weeks later, after getting up to get a drink from her bedside water bottle she sighed and said, "I'm so glad everybody has such nice fresh water to drink." I couldn't help but hesitate (it was 9 at night) and finally say, "Well, actually Honey, they don't." A long explanation later and with one very concerned (and very tired) little girl looking at me I finally said, "Maybe there's something we can do to help." "But I'm too little to help." "Nobody is ever too little to help!" I replied. "Maybe there is a way we can raise money to help them get clean water." "I know, we can have a lemonade stand!" she shouted. And so, here we are, the first lemonade stand will be July 14, 2012 and our journey to help all people have access to clean water is beginning here. We are trying to raise $1500. Enough for a hand pump in a community with no access to clean water. Thanks everyone!

Why It Matters

Access to clean, safe water unlocks potential

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.

About The Water Project

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.
