During the summer of 2013, at a CIY conference I watched a movie called "Zambia's Song," and my eyes were opened to the devastating reality that villages all over Africa are forced to drink filthy, polluted water. As I sat in the air conditioned auditorium, drinking my third bottle of water, I decided that I would do something.Throughout my next four years of college, I'll be hosting a series of 5k races, movie nights, and will be selling bracelets in order to raise money and awareness for the African people. The money that we raise will allow for a water well to be constructed. Clean water brings community, happiness, and health. Raising $10,000 may seem daunting, but I know that we will do great things!

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.
