I am becoming a Bar Mitzvah soon, and, as part of that, I have chosen The Water Project as my mitzvah project.
I have been aware of the need for water in third world countries in Africa and Asia, and thought that this would be a great opportunity for me to raise money for this cause. When I found The Water Project I knew that it was the right fit. They go into different communities in Africa and India and based on their needs they either build a well or teach them how to conserve water. If they need to build a well they do, but wells eventually will rust out or break. So they take care of them and keep a close watch for the wells needs.
I am considering different ideas for an event or events to raise money for this project. In the meantime, if you would like to make a donation please do, every penny counts. You can donate now by clicking on the "Donate Now" link above.
Come back to this page to see how we're doing. Once we've reached our fundraising goal, this page will convert to a progress page and you will be able to track the progress of our sponsored well project.
No donation is too small to help others have access to one of the necessities of life. Thanks for your help.

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.
