I have always thought that the greatest medical care in the world--antibiotics, medicines, vaccines, surgery--are meaningless unless people have the very basics of health: Clean Water, Sanitation, Nutrition. 4,000 children die every day from diseases caused by a lack of clean water. I believe that bringing clean water and sanitation to a village in Sierra Leone is just the beginning for the people. From there, we have something to build on, whether it is a school, a library, or a clinic. If we can raise $12,000 that will be enough to bring a sustainable supply of fresh clean water and sanitation for an entire village. Please join Karen and I in this undertaking, where we can change, and save, lives. - Gray Erlacher, 2011
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.
