Help Fund a Water Project

Together, we can unlock potential in a developing community by providing clean, safe water.
I have a friend from Sierra Leone, and as I learned about the country I discovered that they have limited access to clean, safe drinking water. 85% of Africa does not have access to clean water. People have to walk miles with jugs to get water that is not even safe to drink. This causes neck and back injuries. 4,500 children die everyday worldwide due to illnesses related to the lack of clean water. Every time I turn on the water at home to get a drink, brush my teeth or drink from a fountain at school I think of these people. I wanted to do something to help them. I want to make a difference!!!!!!! I want to build an entire well in Sierra Leone, and I need your help. Please consider donating today. Thank you.

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.
