For school, we are required to do something about a
problem in our world. We got the idea of hosting a running race from dosomething.org. Our
goal was to help the world globally, not just in the United States. The Water
Project caught our interest. Our objective is to raise enough money to build a
water pump in Africa. More than 1 in 8 people in the world don't have access
to safe drinking water. 1 out of every 5 deaths under the age of 5 worldwide is
due to a water-related disease. Nearly 80% of illness in developing countries
is linked to poor water and sanitation conditions. But, for only $20, you can
fix that for one person! Clean water doesn't just save lives, it changes

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.
