In the US, tap water costs around $.002 per gallon and it’s right there at your sink. It’s already filtered, and you have to go through almost nothing to get it. In countries like Kenya, rural areas are forced to go without water or walk distances to find it, because the country can’t afford to build pumps. To get water, many women and children have to devote a third of their day to collecting water, and those who do are more prone to diseases that spread through water.

For our final Global Themes project, we decided to start a fundraiser through the foundation, The Water Project. This fundraiser is created by us, but sponsored by the organization, so all proceeds will go to the organization. The organization has instituted their WaSH program (Water, Sanitation and Hygiene) in more that 1,200 regions in Africa. All of the money donated goes to continuing their programs which are successful by getting the community involved, educating individuals, and monitoring the region after the project is complete, all in an effort to limit water stress. The money will also pay for supplies, like pumps, concrete, as the wages for the crew. Any donation, small or large, is greatly appreciated to help solve this important issue.
