Water is life, and when we look into it deeply enough, we see a reflection of ourselves. I am fundraising because when I see the way we treat water in America, I see a confusion of values. It seems that if we have reached a point where it is okay to treat water as a disposable consumer commodity, we have forgotten its vital role as the life blood of ourselves and our Earth. I see this project as a way to renew my own humanity and help strengthen the elemental bonds that tie us closely to one another and the Earth.
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.
