My 7th grade class was assigned the task of designing their own Service Learning Project (SLP). A SLP allows students to learn about the purpose of community
service and helping out others who are less fortunate. I wanted my students to come up with a cause (of their choosing) to focus their efforts... after brainstorming numerous ideas; our class held a vote. Almost unanimously, our class voted to help raise money to provide clean drinking water for people who do not have it. My students are PASSIONATE about this project; I frequently find them discussing different strategies they can use to raise money to help. I am fortunate to be the teacher of these amazing kids and look forward to guiding them through this journey they have chosen to take.

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.
