I have always had a heart for Africa. There is one place I have always said I wanted to travel to in my lifetime. That place is Africa. Why? The answer to that question is something I can not answer on my own. I truly feel as though God has put this in my heart in hopes that I can grow and develop by means of the African people. Not only grow because of them, but be a light to them.I have been blessed with the opportunity to travel to Rwanda and Uganda in the Spring of 2012. Through the Go-Ed Africa program, I will spend a semester living among people who are so full of life and have a different outlook on life. I know that God will use this opportunity to not only help me grow in my faith, but also help me to develop some of my own opinions and view on issues that i have been sheltered from over the last 19 years in the chocolate bubble. In addition to the love for Africa that God has put in my heart, my oldest brother has been active in the adoption process for the last year. Through America World Adoption, my brother and sister-in-law are patiently waiting to bring home their little boy from Ethiopia, Africa. We don't know who he is or what he looks like yet, but we do know that God has his hands around him, whoever he is. God is great! It is hard to say why he does the things he does, but he has a plan. In Jeremiah 29 verse 11, it says ""For I know the plans I have for you", declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." If we knew His plan for us, what would be the point in putting our trust and faith in Him? God has big plans for both me and the people of Africa. I don't know where my heart will be lead to in the next year, but I am excited! The impact that these donations have on the people of impoverished countries can help make an immense difference. We have the luxury or flipping a nozel that streams fresh water. I think too often we take things like water for granted. Please help support the Water Project and provide fresh water to those who are in need. Any donation you are able to make would truly be a blessing to the people of Africa. in His Grip, Ali

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.
