Augustana International Club, COUPS, and Augie Green are teaming up to create a huge campus and community wide event for Earth Day! It's called The Water Walk: 6k for Earth Day. The Water Project is an organization we have chosen to support because they focus on an element that we all take for granted in our own lives, and is something that we can easily bring awareness to. These three clubs are comprised of many passionate students, looking to raise awareness on the Augustana campus and the Sioux Falls community. It is a way we can show how even five of our dollars can have an impact in someone's life, and a way we can bring ourselves into relationship with another part of the world.
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.
