Help Fund a Water Project

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

At my old nursery, Forest Farm Montessori, we learned that children in Africa get sick because they do not have clean water to drink. Then, they cannot go to school because they are sick or have to walk a long way to get water which is sometimes dirty too for their families. This year for my birthday I would like to help those children feel better and go to school.

It would be really nice if you would consider joining me to fund a water project. With your gifts and your help, we will provide clean and safe and water to a community in Africa, hopefully in Burkina Faso.

Thank you very much indeed!

Love, Rafferty

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.

Who's Helping?
