My Classes (Mrs. Mabe's Earth Science Classes) and my club (The Random Acts of Kindness Club) have been talking about water. We discovered that over 1 billion people worldwide do not have access to clean drinking water. We feel that water should be a basic human right for everyone on the planet. Many people living in the poorest parts of the world walk up to 3 hours a day carrying water home to their family. Many women and children carry up to 40 pounds of water up to 4 miles a day to ensure that they can meet their daily needs. This is valuable time that could be used to earn money for their family and for children to attend school. We want to do something about this issue. Please help us by donating to this cause. Sources online estimate that it takes anywhere from $7,000 to $15,000 to build a well for a community in Africa (which is one of the areas in the world most in need). Please help us meet our goal. I have also turned this into a class competition to see which class can raise the most money for the project. I hope that students, families, and friends, will also choose to contribute. You can choose to do a one time donation (the website has a $10 minimum) or a monthly donation. If you choose to donate to the cause on behalf of a student (in my class, in my club, or at West Stokes) please list the student's name in the message field so that he or she will get credit for the competition if they are in my class. Thank you for your help!

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.
