Help Fund a Water Project

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

In the
US, we take clean water for granted while nearly one billion people in the
world don't have access to clean, safe drinking water. Imagine waking up very
early in the morning to walk half a mile to a crowded well, then wait for hours
to draw water that is mostly mud and probably contains some waterborne sickness
like cholera. These people suffer and we can help.


encourage you to send a donation, raise awareness and do whatever it takes to
spread the word about this important cause.

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.

Why It Matters

Access to clean, safe water unlocks potential

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.
