Help Fund a Water Project

Together, we can unlock potential in a developing community by providing clean, safe water.
783 Million people do not have access to clean and safe water. In developing countries, as much as 80% of illnesses are linked to poor water and sanitation conditions. Half of the world's hospital beds are filled with people suffering from a water-related disease. Over half of the developing world's primary schools don't have access to water and sanitation facilities. Without toilets, girls often drop out at puberty.

Too many lives are lost or disrupted due to the lack of safe drinking water. I feel that all of us in the developed world take water for granted at times as it's easy to forget what goes on outside of our daily lives. When we fundraise, we often support the search for a cure of a disease that has affected us or our loved ones. While this fundraising is very important we often forget that many in the world are sick just from the lack of something as basic as clean water. The money donated to fund drinking water will provide long term solutions for many and prevent millions from illness or death. It's simple, every dollar translates to safe drinking water for someone who needs it.

Please help me fundraise for this cause.

Why It Matters

Access to clean, safe water unlocks potential

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.

About The Water Project

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.
