Hello, we are Ames and Henry, students at Center for Inquiry 27 in Indianapolis. We are doing our 5th grade exhibition projects right now - Ames is researching the lack of accessibility to clean water in Africa, and Henry’s topic is “The Effect of Dirty Water on Children in Africa.” We teamed up to start a fundraiser for The Water Project so wells can be built in Africa. According to TheWaterProject.org, “Only 16% of Sub-Shaharan Africa have access to drinking water through a household connection.” According to USAID.gov, “Most of the areas water points are dry, and some people have to walk 25 kilometers to collect water.” 

If you like filling up your water glass every day with cold water, please consider donating - any amount helps.

After spending some time in Liberia this year, we have seen the water concerns first-hand. One problem with the wells that have been built is that they become contaminated for different reasons -- h
