Matthew is 6 years old and in grade 1. He heard on the radio one afternoon that there are babies all over the world dying from lack of clean water. This started lots of conversations and prayers for people in need. He has a huge heart for this project and is so excited to be apart of bringing this life changing gift to a community. As he said last night, " I am so excited to start, but so sad for the people with no water right now." We realize that we are very blessed to have clean water by the turn of a tap. This helps to keep us healthy, get an education and grow foods of many kinds on our land. We would like to bless others as we have been blessed. We have been called to be God's hands and feet. As you feel led, please consider giving to this life giving project. Thank you

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.
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.
