Help Fund a Water Project

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

Water is something that we take for granted every day. Some people do not have the luxury of clean water like we do, so our goal is to raise $1,000 to help build a well in Africa. Even the smallest donation can help change the life of someone 1,000 miles away. If you have any questions or concerns, please email [email protected]. Remember, no act of kindness is ever wasted. Note for students: If you donate, please put your homeroom number under "message" so we can tally the money for each class. 

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

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.
