This first started out as I looked at the empty water bottles left after volleyball games as a wish to do something with the waste. What I decided was to make this an opportunity for those who need water the most. I can't imagine not having clean water to drink, stay clean, and live. However, many people in our world don't have it that easy. One person at a time can be the domino to effect a change. I experienced this through the help of my friends. We have been able to collect water bottles and recycled them in exchange for money to help build a well. My goal was to collect $500 (over 10,000 water bottles). Thanks to the Rage volleyball team, the Dougherty Valley volleyball team, parents, younger sisters, and family that goal has been reached! But, if you would like to continue to give, a monetary donation is greatly appreciated! May God bless us all. -Kelly

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.
