Help Fund a Water Project

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

We, Jeremy and Melissa, both have a passion for community development and international work. For our wedding, instead of receiving gifts, we ask that our friends and family participate with us in building a sustainable project in a developing country that will last for years to come, save countless lives and make a real difference for an entire community. When I was in Africa last summer, I saw the need and felt a desire to make a difference. Families with no water source can travel many miles both ways for water everyday by foot or use a stagnant standing water source that causes disease and leads to countless deaths. This project embodies our passion and goals in life and we would be honored if you would take part in it with us. We look forward to sharing news about the project as it grows and makes a difference! Thank you for considering this during our time of celebration!

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.
