I hope you'll consider joining me to fund a water project. With your gifts and your help rallying support, we can provide clean, safe and reliable water to a community in Africa.

I think most of us can say we have never had an issue accessing drinkable water. Unfortunately, this is not the case in many places throughout the world. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), 1 in 10 individuals, or 844 million people worldwide, do not have access to clean water. The majority of these individuals live in isolated rural areas and spend hours each day collecting water for their families. Walking for water keeps kids out of school and occupies time that parents could use to grow food or make money. Clean water can solve these problems.

Diarrheal disease is the second leading cause of death in children under five years of age, and is often the direct result of drinking contaminated water. Diarrheal disease is responsible for killing over 525,000 children every year. That’s roughly 1400 children a day, or 1 child every minute.

You and I can change that statistic.

Please help me spread the word and raise awareness for this issue. As a community and as a University, we can have a huge impact on many lives. Please consider donating to this cause – every dollar counts, and no donation is too big or too small.

How this works

Dirty water impacts health, education, women, and income. Providing a reliable and safe water source allows communities to thrive.

The Water Project provides access to safe and reliable water across sub-Saharan Africa. Together, our support can end the water crisis and restore hope, one community at a time.

The coolest part? We'll all get to see our impact! Every gift is directly linked to a specific water project and community. We'll receive updates including photos and stories, maps and more!

Lives change when communities gain access to clean water. Let's experience it together. Make a donation to my fundraising campaign today!
