Help Fund a Water Project

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

By giving WATER CRISIS presentations at area schools, we aim to build awareness, promote global engagement, and emphasize how scientists, engineers, and humanitarians are working together to make a difference for those affected by Water Scarcity. Interested in a school presentation? Contact John at [email protected]

We have also modified the The Water Project's National "Water Challenge" ( to better fit student life-styles.

What is the RVA Student Water Challenge? You drink only water for a few days. You will save at least $5.00 - this could be donated to help people who live in water scarce areas such as Kenya, Sierra Leone, and Uganda.

Eventually we hope to raise $500, all of which The Water Project will use to help build water wells and provide filtration systems that will give less economically developed counties the sanitary water that they need to survive. 

We were inspired to start this project after viewing a youtube video called "Water Changes Everything." Take a few minutes to watch it, you'll see why we were so motivated to help.

Thank you,

John Brennan

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.
