My name is Jessica Faurote, and I teach kids in grades 6, 7, & 8. A few weeks ago, one of my students asked me if we could "do something for people who don't have clean water". I was surprised and impressed with the request. I spoke with this student's family and learned my student's father had actually experienced this growing up in Mexico. He would get up every day at 2 am and walk to get fresh water. The day's clean water supply would quickly be exhausted later in the morning. I was touched, to say the least.Today, I am currently helping my student and his classmates fund raise at school for The Water Project for the next two weeks. My student has already made the first donation of a few dollars from his own monies. My students and I will be doing The Water Challenge and will also be doing a school bake sale. This page is my own personal effort to help my students help others in need. Donations will be accepted here until November 30, 2013. In this month of thankfulness for all of your blessings, please help me share those blessings with others.

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.
