Help Fund a Water Project

Together, we can unlock potential in a developing community by providing clean, safe water.
Hello!! As you all probably know there is a major problem concerning the lack of water in many countries. Nearly 800 million people all over the world do not have access to safe drinking water. This means that approximately 2,300 people die per day due to diarrhea caused by inadequate drinking water, sanitation and hand hygiene. 
It is estimated that nearly 10% of the global disease burden could be reduced through improved water supply, sanitation, hygiene, and water resource management. 
On top of that, the task of carrying water, which very often is full of diseases, is left to the women and children. It is estimated that women and children spend 140 million hours each day collecting water. Think of all the things these people could be doing if they had a good, reliable water source nearby so they wouldn't have to waste hours everyday collecting that which is vital to human health. The adults could be working, allowing them to ear more money and bettering their lives and spending more time with their children. Children could be in school getting an education and opening doors for their future.
If you want to help these people please donate to our campaign. All the money collected will go to building wells in countries without adequate drinking water. The sum of money we want to gather is big, but every contribution makes a difference, however small! Just think of all the lives we could save. What if it was you in need?

IMPORTANT NOTE: We accept US and Canadian funds. Other currencies should be exchanged to US dollars (USD) before sending. If donating online using a debit or credit card, the amount should be entered as the USD equivalent amount; your card processor will take care of the conversion on your card statement.

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.
