Our upper school student's have been studying the Chesapeake Bay Watershed. We have now expanded to studying environmental issues such as water pollution locally and globally. I have incorporated not only science but agriculture, geography, technology, mathematics and engineering. The Water Project lends itself perfectly to my curriculum. With this project students are map reading, studying other cultures, budgeting, calculating, creating, problem solving and learning all about our most valuable resource.. water. As part of this unit I want to encourage students to realize that they as individuals can create change from where they are at on a global level. This project allows students to see exactly how and where their funds are being utilized. We hope you will let students know that together we can make a difference by giving the gift of not only water but of Christ like love for our fellow man.

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.
