Our 12th grade International Relations
class is raising money for the people suffering from unsanitary drinking water.
In developing counties where 80% of illnesses are linked to poor water and
sanitation conditions. Nearly 2 billion people do not have access to safe
drinking water, 37% of those people are in the Sub-Saharan Africa. There is
hope. For every $250 we raise will provide drinking water to a small village.
Our community is not extremely safe, but we felt obligated to do do something
because we have all essential things and advance technology to help process our
future generations, but the children in Africa do not have the same
opportunities as Americans have 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.
