The 7th grade English class read the novel, A Long Walk to Water. The book illustrates the water situation in Sudan, African. Many students felt a connection to the novel. When presented with the water challenge, all students were ready to give up other drinks and they pledged to save as much money as they could to donate. After reading about Nya and Salva in the novel, students understood that they take for granted the clean drinking water that they have access to on a daily basis. Students decided to reach out and connect to the novel. We invite everyone in the community to donate what they can, and take the water challenge, only drink tap water for 14 days to sacrifice like many do in Africa.

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.
