The 6th grade at Marie Murphy watched a movie based on the book If the World Were a Village. After learning about the huge percentage of people who don't have access to clean water in the world, the 6th grade class was motivated to do something to help. They decided to do a walk-a-thon to raise support for The Water Project. Many students will also take part in a water challenge to give up drinking beverages other than water as we prepare for the walk-a-thon. The walk-a-thon will take place on May 29.
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.
