From where I am sitting, I can have access to clean water with a mere ten steps. For millions of people, not only is this impossible, but they have to walk miles for access to contaminated water. This is a simple aspect of our lives that we manage to take for granted everyday. We are faced with many challenges in our lives but we fail to remember that there are so many things that we do not have to worry about. Most of us are living in conditions others can only dream of. We have a steady income, a roof over our heads with electricity, heat and of course running water. If all of us, with these things that are considered luxuries to others took a few minutes to help those in need, there could be a much brighter future for humanity.

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.
