We all feel incredibly fortunate living in a developed nation such as Canada, and like so many others, take something as simple as water for granted. We are very thankful that we have the easiest access some of the cleanest water on the planet. However, millions of individuals, who at no fault of their own, were born into a world of poverty, where some of the basic necessities of life are not accessible to them. Clean drinking water is one of the most vital nutrients our body requires to live. It does not seem just to allow for those people in developing nations to contract diseases and illnesses from unclean drinking water, and even eventually die. We all could just have easily been born into a similar life. By providing easier access to clean water, we will be improving the lives of millions, and hopefully preventing the deaths of millions of people as well.
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.
