Help Fund a Water Project

Together, we can unlock potential in a developing community by providing clean, safe water.
Who Are We and Why Are We Doing This? We are a group of students from Oakville Trafalgar High School in Oakville, Ontario, Canada who will be raising awareness and money in attempt to help provide those in third world countries with clean, fresh drinking water. There are two ways that we will try to inform others on the extreme poverty that occurs and leads to the lack of water and food in the places that in reality are not too far from us. Firstly, throughout our nine week civics course we will be fasting for one day, three times which will put ourselves in the shoes of the less fortunate and will allow ourselves to have a greater appreciation and understanding of what these innocent people have to endure everyday. Secondly, we will canvasing door to door throughout our neighbourhoods, educating our fellow citizens on this issue and asking them for a small donation that will create a big change. Finally, we will be promoting and tracking this throughout Facebook to further our fundraiser and continue to spread the word of who we are, what we are doing and why we are doing it. So be sure to check out and like our page. Please donate today as it is the least we can do as people who are extremely fortunate to have life's necessities.
“One generous day of ours, makes a healthy day of theirs.”

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.
