Think about what it would be like to be an intelligent school-aged girl who can't go to school because you need to help your family fetch water from a dirty river that takes half a day to walk to. I can't imagine a life where basic human rights are barely met with extreme effort.
When it only costs $10 to provide clean water to one person for 10 years, it becomes readily apparent that with very little sacrifice in our daily lives, we could give someone a basic human right that we take for granted every minute of every day. Ten dollars (and sometimes even more!) is what you pay per gallon if you are buying a bottle of water at the gas station. Wouldn't it feel good to know that you provided clean water to someone for a decade?

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.
