Thanks to a series of events and some frustration with a big box retailer, my family has been without a hot water heater for two weeks (and counting!). This minor inconvenience has got us thinking about those who have no access to clean drinking water.
Now, we're channeling our frustration into something positive. Our goal is to raise enough funds to dig a well in a third world country in the same amount of time it took us to get a new water heater. We still don't have the water heater - so it is completely conceivable that we actually might be able to construct a well half way across the globe before a popular home improvement store can drive down the street and install our water heater.
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.
