Help Fund a Water Project

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


My name is Jacob Devlin and I am 6 years old. I am raising money to fund a water project in Africa. The money I raise will go toward building a dam, constructing a well or a system to capture rainwater. I will get to be the underwriter for this construction project. ( I love construction!) Once we meet our goal I will get updates on the construction project which I can share with all of you! My goal is to raise $5000! In addition to accepting donations, I will be doing jobs to meet my goal. 1. I can mow lawns 2. I will pull weeds 3. Look out for announcements on my cookie and lemonade stand sales If you have a job that you think I can handle, give me a call and I will be there! Thank you Jacob UPDATE: Join me in the water challenge!

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.
