Help Fund a Water Project

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

We are Uplift
Community High School, a social justice school on the north side of Chicago.
We believe that water is a right, not a privilege.


This year, we have
learned about water scarcity and how it affects communities across the
world. Since we have learned about the water crisis, we felt that we
should teach others about it and do what we can to help people access clean
water. Our goal is to raise $630 to help provide at least two other
classrooms with water so that they can get an education and enjoy the
privileges and opportunities that we do. By helping children
access water at school, we will help our fellow students to get an education
and break the cycle of poverty.

Why It Matters

Access to clean, safe water unlocks potential

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.

About The Water Project

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.
