I live in one of the most water abundant areas in the community. We have fresh water supplies that most of the world can only dream.
I also have "enough". Sure, I have WANTS, but every NEED is fulfilled and, to be honest,so are the majority of my wants. This is also the case for everyone I know, friends and family. We all have adequate shelter, food, freshwater, clothing and lots of of our WANTS.
We live in peaceful areas - no bombs dropping on any of us. We don't have to fear,on a daily basis, for our safety. We know that we have enough food. We have enough that we can certainly do with less. Hell,my dogs live a better life than the majority of human beings on this planet - and I'm not even one of the WEALTHY! I am, however,incredibly rich - great husband, son, family, and friends; a great home; a fantastic job; enough excess to have hobbies and free healthcare...oh, and yes, free & abundant fresh water.
Water is such a tiny thing for us and a lifesaving NEED for so many in the world.
With a little less greed and a lot more compassion, there is absolutely no reason anyone on this world should have to live without access to fresh water.

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.
