With the recent success of the ALS Ice Bucket challenge, we've seen the ability of water to help save lives by having people pour it over their heads.
In a country like ours where such a challenge is possible and clean water is not particularly hard to come across, it can be easy to forget that there are literally millions of people in the world who lack access to clean and safe drinking water. In fact, it's estimated that 3.4 million people die every year and 1,400 children die every *day* from lack of clean water, sanitation, and other hygiene related causes.
We can help change this. By making a donation to The Water Project and helping me to reach my fundraising goal, you can help bring clean water to the people who need it the most. If you can't afford to donate, it's okay, you don't need to pour water on your head! Just please share this page and help me get the word out! You can even create your own page and start your own fundraising campaign.
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.
