Help Fund a Water Project

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

The 2nd grade Brownie scouts at Somerville School in Ridgewood need your help to make a difference! We have spent the year learning about the importance of water. We want to give back to a community that does not have access to water the way we do. We also want to encourage our classmates and their families to save water whenever possible. It is exciting to think we can make a real difference to the quality of other children's lives.


Please consider taking our water challenge and giving up beverages other than water for 2 weeks. Donate the money you save toward a new well in a needy community. Anything you can give will go toward a great project.


Thanks for your help in advance,


Brownie troop 4185

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.
