My name is Zoe, I am an eighth grader and I am passionate about helping others in different, less fortunate countries. I read the book A Long Walk to Water. This book inspires me to want to raise money to build wells in Africa and raise awareness about the importance of having clean water. Seven hundred eighty three million people do not have access to clean safe water, 30,000 deaths occur every week because of unsafe water. Often because of the lack of water women and girls have to travel up to six hours walking to fetch water for their families. This water has diseases and because there is no water for proper hygiene this causes the girls and boys to miss school, Education is the quickest way out of poverty and only 50 percent of girls are enrolled in school due to having to get water for their families. Access to water and the practice of good hygiene could save the lives of 1.5 million children a year. This makes me feel like I need to do my part to help make the world a better place. I will be holding a walk and other fundraisers to raise money for the construction of 1 well in Africa. Stay tuned for more details. Please Donate anytime as the walk is still being planned!

How this works

Dirty water impacts health, education, women, and income. Providing a reliable and safe water source allows communities to thrive.

The Water Project provides access to safe and reliable water across sub-Saharan Africa. Together, our support can end the water crisis and restore hope, one community at a time.

The coolest part? We'll all get to see our impact! Every gift is directly linked to a specific water project and community. We'll receive updates including photos and stories, maps and more!

Lives change when communities gain access to clean water. Let's experience it together. Make a donation to my fundraising campaign today!
