Amidst our hectic, modern lives, we easily forget the existence of those in need- especially when we live in a society which is more lively, more advanced, more privileged than ever before.
It is when we consider the scope of our world that we realize the disparities between entire societies. While we enjoy the convenience and ease of our society, there exist women who walk for hours each day just to provide contaminated water for their children. It is when we take a step back to view the world- rather than just our own community- that we realize the necessity of assisting those who are living without clean water. And it is when we look to those in need that we realize the extent to which a single helping hand can make a difference.
We, as a club, have been fundraising through recycling and other events. Our goal is to raise as much as we can for a purpose that will change lives forever- even one dollar will help our cause.

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.
