Help Fund a Water Project

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

Water is something we all use everyday without thinking too much about it. Throughout much of the world though, water is a precious resource that is in the forefront of people's minds. They don't just turn on a faucet and watch the water flow; they walk miles, carry heavy loads, and pray for water. We want to try to make a difference in the lives of these people for their health, education, and hygiene. Please help us reach our goal!

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.
