We can drink 2, 3, 10 or how many litres of water we desire to drink, every day. There are people who would do anything to have a sip of clean water.
Stop. Look around. A great percentage of the readers will have one bottle or cup of water, less than ten mitres from them. Children living in poverty don’t... They walk more than eight hours to get a bucket of water. When they finally arrive home, feeling terribly sick, and desperately thirsty, they can’t drink the water because it’s too dirty...
A sixth of the World's population does not have access to clean water. Since you have started reading this, four people around the World have died due to water-related diseases. And what do people do about this? Nothing.
In this campaign I am aiming to raise money to help all of the people suffering from this extremely avoidable issue. No matter how small or big the amount you donate is, it will make a difference, and will help someone survive.

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.
