This year I am graduating from Middletown High School with a pathway in natural resources and environmental science. For my senior project I chose to write a research paper on the importance of having clean water in developing countries. What I found during my research appalled me and although I can't change the world, I'd like to be able to help change a few people's lives.

In many communities they must choose to either send their children to get unsanitary water from miles away or send them to school. It is said that in developing countries, as much as 80% of illnesses are linked to poor water and sanitation conditions. Unfortunately, many children die from preventable diseases because their bodies do not have the nourishment and hydration needed to fight through the illness.

I hope you'll consider joining me to help The Water Project. With your gifts they can provide clean, safe, and accessible water to people in need. If my goal is met then 10 people will receive guaranteed access to clean water for a full year.

How this works

Dirty water impacts health, education, women, and income. Providing a reliable and safe water source allows communities to thrive.

The Water Project provides access to safe and reliable water across sub-Saharan Africa. Together, our support can end the water crisis and restore hope, one community at a time.

The coolest part? We'll all get to see our impact! Every gift is directly linked to a specific water project and community. We'll receive updates including photos and stories, maps and more!

Lives change when communities gain access to clean water. Let's experience it together. Make a donation to my fundraising campaign today!
