Help Fund a Water Project

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

"Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It's not. " Dr. Seuss

Our class has been reflecting on this quote and ways we can make a difference in this world. Someone in our class had the idea that we could help people who don't have clean water, something we all take for granted. Mrs. Rice found The Water Project online and we all decided it would be a great thing for us to do. In this class we believe we CAN make a difference. We are collecting change for a week at our school entrance and also have set up this site if you would like to give. Thanks for caring! Mrs. Rice's 3rd Grade Class Sam Houston Elementary

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.

Why It Matters

Access to clean, safe water unlocks potential

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.
