Help Fund a Water Project

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

My name is Ryan Connors and I am fundraising to build another well for a needy school in Kenya! This Christmas I gave the gift of water to a school in Kenya and am hoping to raise enough money to do it again. With generous donations we can save the lives of hundreds in the next year!

Why should you help?

  • Nearly 1 billion people don't have safe water to drink.

  • A child dies every 15 seconds from a lack of clean water.

  • 1 in 4 children who die before age 5 worldwide, die of a water related disease.

  • Children often walk miles every day to collect dirty water to drink.

  • You can change that for only $10 per person!

  • `And its the right thing to do, why do we get unlimited access to clean water while these poor people have none?

  • Thank you all so much for donating. It means so much to me and to the people in this world who dont have clean water!!!! :) Spread the word!

    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.
