Help Fund a Water Project

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

The Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology (APIC) Northern New Jersey Chapter 021 has a vision for International Infection Prevention Week (IIPW) held during October 20th-26th 2013. It is our intention to create a significant global impact by creating a ripple effect from Northern New Jersey to Africa in order to provide the most basic element of infection prevention, clean water.

Nearly 1 billion people lack access to clean water and worldwide nearly 1 out of every 5 deaths under the age of 5 is due to a water related disease. By investing in clean water, children around the world can gain more than 413 million days of health.

All monies raised will be used to fund the building and repair of wells, sand dams, and other water technologies where clean and safe water is often scarce. The health and well being of so many individuals is in our hands and together we can make a difference. We are excited you have decided to join us in this endeavor and appreciate your support!

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.
