We are pretty lucky to be living in a country where clean water flows freely. We don't even think twice about getting water to drink, taking a shower, washing cars, even washing our pets! But the reality is, in other parts of the world, like Africa, there are whole communities of people sick and dying because the water they have for everyday living is not clean at all.
So the big question is, what are we going to do about it? It's only about $4,500 to build a well for a whole community in a couple places in Africa like Sudan and Sierra Leone. That's a lot for us as individual kids, but put all of our minds and efforts together and we can do it! We can build a well to save a community in Africa!
Let's do it!

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.
