We are a team of seven second grade girls from San Francisco. During first grade, we watched the movie Ryan's Well, about a boy who saved money to build a well in Africa. This movie inspired us to build a well also.
We want to build our well near a school, because we learned that without access to fresh water, education is almost impossible. Kids have to walk many miles, and miss a lot of school, and when they get there, the water isn't even clean. That means kids can get diseases and even die, because the water they are drinking is often polluted.
We want to raise money to build a well so that the kids are able to have fresh water in their own communities, so they don't miss school and are educated. We hope you can help!!

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.
