Hey A.O.K.! For years, I have wanted to build a water we'll in Africa. We take advantage of how accessible water is for us here and sometimes forget it isn't so easy for people in other parts of the world. Every little bit helps! $23 is enough to give 1 person fresh water for a year.I will be having a kick off fundraiser party on Sunday August 31st at my house. Anyone who wishes to pledge to the water project can sign up (even if you can't make the parties). I will have a potluck and will talk about what the water project is in more depths. I will have the wrap up party on Saturday September 20th where we will collect the money to see what A.OK. has raised. There will be prizes for the top fundraisers. I will also keep stats on our forum to let everyone know where the money is going and the progress of the well being built. I am very excited to have you all participate in this very worthwhile fundraising effort! Alicia Farrow
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.
