Help Fund a Water Project

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


I am the Daddy to two beautiful, healthy girls. We live in the luckiest country in the World. We have clean, fresh food available at the nearest shops. Both my girls can go to school and get an education, free from fear and persecution. And when they are thirsty, they can turn on a tap and get clean, fresh, safe drinking water, 24 hours a day, everyday. They do not have to walk for 3 hours everyday to collect water for their family, like millions of little girls do all around the World ( girls are often taken out of school to collect food and water, while boys are left in school to be educated). Everyday, it is estimated by the World Health Organisation that over 6000 children die from dirty, unsafe water. EVERY DAY. That is 2.5 times the passenger capacity of the Titanic. Every single day. Or the equivalent of the MCG every two weeks. No matter how you look at it, it is horrifying. In this day and age, with all the things Mankind has solved, created, invented, overcome, discovered or experienced, we cannot and should not tolerate such terrible statistics.
The thing is, we can do something about it. In partnership with The Water Project (, we can all work together and raise enough money to place, for example, a permanent deep water well in a village in Africa.
As a dad, I find it very difficult to know there are children all around the World who do not share the basic life necessities that my children take for granted. I find it harder, the older I get, to look at myself in the mirror, knowing how lucky we are and how terribly unlucky so many others are. Why can't we all be lucky? Alone, I can't do much. I need help. I need YOUR help. Please. I have a goal, to raise $10,000. Together, we can do this. For the price of a bottle of fresh, clean, water or a coffee, we can all give and make a difference. Actually, we can make THE difference. To a village. They say it takes a village to raise a child. Maybe it takes a nation to raise a village. Let's find out.

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.
