Once upon a time, three young ladies named Kaila, Jayme, and Gabby, at Annapolis High School in Dearborn Heights, Michigan, organized a group and a fundraiser to help educate their peers about injustice in the world, and to raise money to help those suffering because of that injustice. After those remarkable young women graduated, that group continued its efforts to affect change in the world.
Today, the students of Annapolis High School have further developed Students Helping End World Suffering, or SHEWS, because they want to help people beyond their borders. In this spirit, they have selected water in Africa as their focus. The students raise funds yearly through Penny Wars in order to support the construction or refurbishment of wells in areas of Africa in particular need, with a special focus on areas with children and schools. The students want to help end world suffering in whatever way they can, and The Water Project is it. This year, the goal is $2000.00 to be raised through Penny Wars and online donations.
Please show your support of the efforts of the students at Annapolis, as well as for the children in Africa who are in dire need of assistance, and donate to the cause.
SHEWS appreciates your support!

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.
