First World Problem: Running out of storage space to keep your out-dated sweaters and rarely used specialized kitchen appliances.Third World Problem: Running out of clean water for your children to drink. First World Problem: Feeling overwhelmed by clutter or disorganization. Third World Problem: Dropping out of school to help an aging parent, who can no longer make a long trek to gather his or her own water. So, yeah, being a first-worlder isn't so bad, but here is a way to solve your clutter and storage issues, WHILE helping to ease the devastation caused by the water crisis around the world. Many of us (myself included) feel like we can't afford to donate enough money to make that big of a difference. However, if you are like me, you are probably somewhat buried in items that you don't use, need or want anymore. Let's use what we have! What if we hosted an online, ongoing yard sale and collectively donated the proceeds towards the building of a well, somewhere in the world, where it is CRUCIALLY needed?

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.
