Help Fund a Water Project

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

I am representing the sophomore class of Maryville High School at homecoming September 23rd. Homecoming here is different in the best way. Instead of the usual popularity vote, girls raise money to support a charity they are passionate about. Whoever raises the most is then crowned queen!

I hope you'll consider joining me to raise awareness and money for The Water Project. With your gifts and your help rallying support, we can provide clean, safe and reliable water to a community in Africa.

Today, 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 me spread the word.

Donations must be made by September 21st if you are interested in giving. Thank you for your assistance in bringing hope to the suffering. Thank you for your assistance in bringing change to the world.

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.
