Help Fund a Water Project

Together, we can unlock potential in a developing community by providing clean, safe water.

Hello, and thank you for checking out my page! I have lived in West Africa for most of my life and love the people and the place. Right now I'm in America and I think this fundraising project is an awesome opportunity to feel like I'm doing something for my special continent and connect in some way. I miss Africa very much and am delighted to help provide water in this way.

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.
