Help Fund a Water Project

Together, we can unlock potential in a developing community by providing clean, safe water.
Fundraiser

Aqua Party is in it's 6th year, and 2016 is going to be the best yet.

Come join us to raise awareness and support for clean water on August 13th, at 260 Bay Walk, Fire Island Pines. Tickets required.

To-date Aqua Party has raised almost $50,000 for clean water, helping 2500 people in communities in Kenya get access to safe, clean, reliable water.

Why water?

  • 1 in 9 people world wide do not have access to safe and clean drinking water.
  • Half of the world's hospital beds are filled with people suffering from a water-related disease.
  • Nearly 1 out of every 5 deaths under the age of 5 worldwide is due to a water-related disease.
  •  

    Each year we've helped a new community move from needless suffering to opportunities to thrive. Here are the communities:

  • 2010 - St. Veronica Weonia Primary School - 500 served
  • 2011 - Mnazio-Moja Community Water Kiosk - 500 served
  • 2013 - Marko Spring - 143 served
  • 2014 - Wuumisyo Wa Miangeni - 1045 served
  • 2015 - Kikumini Primary School RWH  - 239 served
  •  

    Our 2016 goal is to raise $10,000 to fund clean water and new latrines at a school in Western Kenya. We've chosen to help a school because of the hope and impact clean water can mean for young children.

  • Over half of the developing world's primary schools don't have access to water and sanitation facilities. Without toilets, girls often drop out at puberty.
  • By investing in clean water alone, young children around the world can gain more than 413 million days of health!
  •  

    We hope you'll consider joining us this year! With your generous gifts and your help rallying support, we can provide clean, safe and reliable water to a community in Africa.

    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.
