Filter understands how vital clean water is to security and development
throughout the planet. Our business was founded on the goal of providing every
person in North America with the right tools to access clean water in any
environment in any emergency.
While we recognize the crisis in our
own backyard we also realize that throghout the world, diseases from unsafe
water and lack of basic sanitation kill more people every year than all forms
of violence, including war. Children are especially
vulnerable, as their bodies aren't strong enough to fight diarrhea, dysentery
and other GI related illnesses contracted from poor water.
In fact, 90% of the
30,000 deaths that occur every week from unsafe water and unhygienic living
conditions are in children under five years old. The WHO reports that over
3.6% of the global disease burden can be prevented simply by improving water
supply, sanitation, and hygiene.

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.
