Help Fund a Water Project

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

My fundraising page was a big success last year and I would like your help to donate again. Please use this link to see what everyone who donated last year to my birthday cause helped me to achieve for the people of Uganda. You will be amazed!

The story below is about how I became so inspired.


I became inspired to help the people of Africa by my fourth grade teacher Mrs. Wheeler. She has traveled to Africa several times to help the children there. When I saw the faces of the children that she had met, I felt the need to help in anyway I could.
I learned that the people of Africa really need clean water. They do not have this basic thing that we take for granted. I realize they NEED water more than I WANT anything. That is why on my birthday, rather than buying gifts for me, it would mean so much to me if you would help me to help the children of Africa.

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.
