Help Fund a Water Project

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

This semester, the class Health 280: Perspectives in International Health at Illinois Wesleyan University is fundraising
for a charity we felt strongly about. The Water Project provides a basic
human need; water. On a college campus it is something we take for
granted, and we want to educate and raise awareness about the need for a
clean water source in Africa. The money raised will help to not only
build a well, but a sustainable system in a community in Africa.

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.
