Help Fund a Water Project

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

"I am fundraising because some people don't have clean water, and that makes me sad. If people can't get enough clean water, they can get really sick.

I want everyone to drink plenty of clean water. Please consider donating to my fundraiser to help me raise enough money to get clean water for every body." - Ella, 7 (almost 8) years old Ella was watching TV one day and saw a story about people not having access to clean water and it deeply affected her. With her birthday coming up, we discussed having a fundraiser to help make it possible to get access to clean water. So for Ella's 8th birthday, she's asking that instead of gifts, please consider donating to her fundraiser and help her dreams come true.

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.
