We're Providing Access to Clean Drinking Water, with Your Help!
Did you know that nearly 1 billion people don't have clean, safe water to drink? We didn't.
When we learned about the crisis, and that a few people can actually
make a huge impact, we decided to get involved. Today we're working in
five countries helping hundreds of new people find access to safe water
and sanitation every week by funding water wells and other safe water
We tell stories. The story of water, the story of change, and the
story of hope. These stories inspire people to raise the money needed
to build wells and other water projects at schools, medical centers,
churches and other public places in under-developed nations.
When people get involved and act, we're able to connect them directly
to the projects and the people doing the work. We show where every
dollar is spent. We show the outcome. And when it doesn't work out,
we'll show that too. After all, this work isn't easy.
With monies raised, our partners in the field can do the digging and
construction needed to provide clean, safe water efficiently and
sustainably. They also mobilize, train, and follow-up with local
communities, helping ensure long-term success.
We work closely with our partners around the world who identify,
implement, report on and follow up on every project. That's how we
share the whole story with you and hopefully inspire confidence in the
work being done and the impact it has.
We work hard to help you help others. Our goal is to make sure your
generous gifts are put to the best possible use. We want to see lives
changed through hope restored.
We believe that providing clean water restores hope by enabling our
partners to make a "whole-life impact" in the communities they serve
through their broader development activity. We desire to
see access to clean water enable schools to thrive, people to get back
to work, farming to provide enough food to earn a living, and suffering
to be alleviated as health improves.
We believe the issues facing Africa, India and other under-developed parts of the world are not simply today's problems.
We know that a lack of clean water stands in the way of tomorrow's hope. And we're sure that together we can change that.
Using local labor and management, and donated funds,
we help dig wells, build small dams, collect rain-water in large tanks,
and filter dirty water with Biosand water filtration systems. We
believe it is essential for assistance such as ours to be a help, not a
The Water Project is currently focused on building a community of
volunteers and raising money to construct water wells and rain water
collection and filtration systems in communities throughout Kenya,
Rwanda, Sierra Leone, Sudan, and Uganda. We have also previously funded
projects in Cameroon, Haiti, and India
We're empowering local NGOs (non-governmental organizations) and
missionaries with an established presence in effected communities to do
the work that's needed to find and collect clean water.
That means we send money and expertise to help local communities build
their own long-term water solutions and then ensure they are trained to
We believe that our partners in the field know best how to help their
own communities. Our part is telling their stories and inspiring people
We believe that these smaller, more nimble, and locally-based
implementation partners are incredibly effective and efficient at
providing sustainable clean water solutions.
Most of us have never really been thirsty. We’ve never had to leave our houses
and walk 5 miles to fetch water. We simply turn on the tap, and water comes
out. Clean. Yet there are a billion people on the planet who don’t have clean
It’s hard to imagine what a billion people looks like really, but one in eight
might be easier. One in eight people in our world don’t have access to the most
basic of human needs. Something we can’t imagine going 12 hours without.
Here, we’d like to introduce you to a few of those billion people. They are
very real, and they need our help. They didn’t choose to be born into a village
where the only source of water is a polluted swamp. And we didn’t choose to be
born in a country where even the homeless have access to clean water and a
We invite you to put yourself in their shoes. Follow them on their daily
journey. Carry 80 pounds of water in yellow fuel cans. Dig with their children
in sand for water. Line up at a well and wait 8 hours for a turn.
Now, make a decision to help. We’re not offering grand solutions and billion
dollar schemes, but instead, simple things that work. Things like freshwater
wells, rainwater catchments and sand filters. For about $20 a person, we know
how to help millions.
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.
