Help Fund a Water Project

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

Our daughter, Reed, who is a big fan of The Lion King, decided she wanted to have an African-themed birthday dinner for her 7th birthday in January. This theme sparked a family discussion about Africa, and I mentioned to Reed that Africa was a beautiful place, but that there was widespread poverty across the continent. Reed, of course, wanted to know if she could ask her friends and family to donate money for her birthday to assist people in Africa. How could I say no to such a request?

After researching several charities that provide assistance in Africa, we decided that supporting The Water Project would be a great way to provide much-needed aid to the people of Africa, as well as a great way for our friends and family to honor our sweet, thoughtful and kind girl.

Reed would love for everyone to donate just a few dollars in honor of her 7th birthday to The Water Project, which assists in providing clean water to communities in Africa. Please read more about all the ways in which providing clean water assists these communities on www.the

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.
