We, the fifth grade class at Al Rahmah School, think it is unfair that people around the world do not have access to clean water. In class, we learned about water: the unique properties, the uses, and how it is vital to life. We read a book called A Long Walk to Water by Linda Sue Park. We learned how other countries are dealing with water scarcity, unlike the US where we have water abundance. In some countries, young girls have to walk hours with a container on their head to collect water, which isn't even clean. Their families suffer from diseases from drinking contaminated water, the children cannot be educated and make money to have better lives. We are so fortunate that we can just turn on the tap and have fresh, clean, clear water. With the money we raise, we can all work together to give people in poor countries the clean water they need. Allah (SWT) says that when you give in charity, Allah will give you better. Please give as much as you can to help the people that need water. Jazak'Allah khair! May God reward you!

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.
