Help Fund a Water Project

Together, we can unlock potential in a developing community by providing clean, safe water.

I hope you'll consider joining me to fund the "Don't Close Your Eyes" water fundraiser. With your gifts and your help rallying support, we can provide clean, safe and reliable water to a community in Africa.

My team and I recommend "A Long Walk To Water" by Linda Sue Park. It is based on a true story and it will help spread the word about how sick dirty water can make a kid or an adult.

Everyday hundreds of millions of people suffer needlessly because they don't have clean drinking water. It is responsible for 1 in 5 deaths of children under age 5. Girls are kept from going to school, often spending 8 hours a day or more carrying water. These girls cannot go to school and end up without education doomed to poverty.

Too many children suffer needlessly - walking miles for dirty water that makes them sick. You and I can change that. Please make a donation and then help us spread the word. Please consider telling at least 2 other people about this and asking them to tell at least 2 people.

Why It Matters

Access to clean, safe water unlocks potential

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.

About The Water Project

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.
