We're getting married!!!
In celebrating our new life together, we wanted to remember that all too often we take things for granted. We forget how lucky we are to have access to clean water. We wash our faces in it, we drink it, we cook our food with it, we water our plants with it, we even go to the bathroom in it.
Almost 1 billion people lack access to clean and safe water. 37% of those people live in sub-Saharan Africa. Nearly 1 out of every 5 deaths under the age of 5 worldwide is due to a water-related disease.
Lack of clean water is a fixable problem.
Our contributions make a difference.
In lieu of a wedding gift, please help us sponsor a water project and help provide clean, safe, sustainable water to a community in sub-Saharan Africa.

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.
