Before starting a "homework assignment" in which I chose clean water as my topic, I knew about the need for clean water and good sanitation - especially in Africa, India and other parts of Asia.
As I dug into information (web pages, videos) and began to learn more about specific needs, I became serious about doing something to make a difference.
I'm still working on my assignment: designing a WebQuest (a large lesson that engages students in real-life learning by interacting with information from various sources on the Internet) as my final project for the educational technology class I'm taking towards my master's degree in education with an emphasis in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages. Just as it is not done yet, I'm not done yet doing something to make a difference.
Will you join me in making a donation - even as small as $5 - to The Water Project?
They give 100% of donations to the projects they are working on.

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.
