Help Fund a Water Project

Together, we can unlock potential in a developing community by providing clean, safe water.
COLD SHOWER CHALLENGE - GET INVOLVED & SHARE We're currently in the middle of a very successful campaign to highlight ALS and it's managed to raise millions of pounds already. It really has shown how much of a difference we can all make when we all come together but whilst raising lots of money it's also meant that we have poured a lot of water down the drain. This got me thinking that maybe we should be giving the water away rather than pouring it away....Today nearly 1 billion people in the developing world don't have access to it. Yet, we take it for granted, we waste it, and we even pay too much to drink it from little plastic bottles. In this day and age it really shouldn't be happening but all around the world, far too many people spend their entire day searching for it. WHAT CAN YOU DO? Rather than pouring bucket of cold water over yourself we would like everyone to do the following: - ○ Get into your shorts/bikini ○ Get a friend to video you ○ Get in a cold shower and whilst in the shower nominate 3 friends. ○ Head to and Donate whatever you can afford.... We all have to shower so this isn't wasting any more water than a normal day but in the process we can raise awareness of the water shortage problems in Africa, save energy (no heat remember) and have a bit of fun at the same time. This will help to provide the population of Africa with clean, safe drinking water. It's needless suffering that can be helped. Thanks for taking the time to read.

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.
