Help Fund a Water Project

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

Hi! My name is Anja Erickson. Last year in 3rd grade, I learned about the African Water Crisis and how big of a problem it is. I'm fundraising money for Africa because water is a basic human need, and we often take it for granted. Dirty water has caused sickness and death for many people, which is why I want to change that.

I do Bake Sales to raise money to donate to the crisis. I think that if everyone donated a little it could still make a big difference. The African Water Crisis is a big problem, and that's why we need to solve it. I want to help the African Water Crisis because it is affecting many people in bad ways.



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.
