This past November, we attended a retreat at Warren Willis UM Camp called Imprint. The retreat focused on health issues worldwide, including the issue of clean water. We participated in a water walk, in which we each carried two gallons about a mile to a lake, filled up the gallons, and walked back to camp. The water walk was pretty challenging, but what was really mind-blowing is that in Africa people walk on average four times the distance we did and walk at least 3 times a day. Through this water walk, our eyes were opened and we were inspired to make a difference. The Water Project is an incredible way to help bring clean water to people in need, and any donation to our fundraiser is greatly appreciated!

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.
