I am sending this out to all of my friends and family. I decided to set up this page to try and raise money to build a well for a community that doesn't have clean drinking water. There is a lot of information on www.thewaterproject.org if you have any questions about it. If you can donate a few dollars eventually we will be able to raise enough to sponsor at least one well.
I am also trying to find a way that I can sell my paintings and have the proceeds go to this project. Once I have all of that sorted out I will send out the info (and post it on this page) for anyone who would be interested in buying some art to help fund a clean water project.
You can make an enormous impact on hundreds of lives by sponsoring a clean water well.
Cost and project availability vary, but on average a water project costs
around $5,000-$6,000. These costs include preparing the community for a
water project, actual construction and the long-term monitoring and
evaluation needed to make sure your investment lasts a very long time.
If you aren't sure if you want to get involved watch the documentary 'Flow' before you make your decision.
All it takes is a little time and a bit of passion to change the world.
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.
