I got up in the middle of the night to get a sip of water... Golly I was thirsty! As I turned the faucet and took a bit in my cup I was struck by the fact of how many small children are at mortal risk because there is no safe water to drink. It was the First Sunday in Advent and I had my message about the real meaning of gift giving. After a tumultuous and divisive time in our country, I was overwhelmed by the desire to do something positive. I can not imagine anyone not wanting to do something that can radically improve the lives of so many people for so little cost!
Little girls, young women and mothers are especially at risk from predators as they make just over a six mile trek to fetch water for their families. Please join me in a campaign that will change lives and bring life.

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.
