Personally, I am very passionte about water. It started with watching a documentary and boycotting bottled water, and has lead to educating myself and yearning to learn more about the global water crisis. I can't imagine, as a parent myself, what it would be like to not have safe drinkable water for my children or any water at all. I also have a soft spot in my heart for Africa. My youngest child is half Kenyan, so I have had the opportunity to meet many people from different countries within that great continent. I have grown a love of the culture, perseverance, and passion of the african people. And now with this drought taking place, I just want to help. As an artist I decided that I should use my skill and trade to try and make a difference and build awareness in my home town on this very serious and devasting issue. I will be showcased at a local cafe for the month of September and realized this is the prime opportunity to do something!
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.
