Help Fund a Water Project

Together, we can unlock potential in a developing community by providing clean, safe water.
Hello, everyone. My name is Libby Graalum, I'm a high-school student who wants to make a difference in this world. I went to the Christ in Youth (CIY) conference in Corvallis, Oregon at the OSU campus. There, with my youth group, we all received kingdom worker cards at the end of the week. These cards each have a different challenge, for example; mine was to serve once a month at any non-profit organization (like a soup kitchen or old-folks home). While I am still doing the challenge I received, I felt that God was calling me to challenge myself further. So in partnership with Leanne, my best friend from youth group, we are only drinking water for a whole year. The money that we would normally spend on fancy Starbucks drinks or soda will go towards the construction of wells in Africa. Along with the funds from non-water drinks, I designed (and will add more) T-shirts for our cause at All profits from the merchandise will go directly to this cause. I pray to the Lord that my and Leanne's challenge will help us grow in our faith and make a difference. 

Update 08/03/15:
Other awesome friend of mine, Emily, has decided that she wants to help with the project and join in with our only water challenge. She is a fantastic servant of the Lord, a great leader, and extremely creative. I'm excited for the days ahead. Emily, Leanne, and I will brainstorm some fundraiser ideas and make it happen!

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.
