Help Fund a Water Project

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

Soda Stream WINNER! Thanks to EVERYONE!

Many of us take water for granted. We swim in it, we drink it because we basically have an endless supply of it, we do allot of stuff with water. It is necessary for life! But what about those who don't have water? Some kids have to walk 5K to get water that is not even clean. I would like to Change this in more places than one.


I came up with he idea to raise money to build a well in Africa because of something our teacher showed us called Ryan's well. It inspired me to use my tech skills and the internet to raise money to build a well. I’m not just another teenager who is lazy, I am trying to make a change my school has inspired me to help the community, and I would like to reach further.

Why It Matters

Access to clean, safe water unlocks potential

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.

About The Water Project

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.
