Millions of people worldwide do not have clean water. This issue is even more significant in Sub-Saharan Africa, as most of the countries do not have access to safe water. “Water-borne diseases kill more children every single year than AIDS, Malaria, and all world violence combined” (Maxwell, 2014). Obviously, not having access to clean water, or water at all, is a serious problem. However, many people do not realize the extent of this problem. Without clean water, consequences to health, education, hunger and overall standard of life are common. Because this issue is such a widespread problem, there is not just one simple solution and rather several small-scale solutions that can be implemented.

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.
