I live in a place where water is abundant because of rain, rivers and the mountains. We have great potable water from the tap.
But, in my school project on Water Consumption, I learned that many people and in particular children in Africa do not have enough water. In fact, many children die every day from water that is not clean and causes fatal diseases.
As part of my project I decided to take action. I want to help raise money to build a water well in Africa. Even if it is only one well, it can save the life of some children and their families.
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.
