At any time, half of the world's hospital beds are occupied by patients suffering from water-borne diseases. The purpose behind us starting this project was to actually do something about inequality on earth and make a change Over one third of the world's population has no access to sanitation facilities. Also in developing countries, about 80% of illnesses are linked to poor water and sanitation conditions. 1 out of every 4 deaths under the age of 5 worldwide is due to a water related disease. In developing countries, it is common for water collectors, ussually women and girls, to have to walk several kilometers every day to fetch water. Once filled, pots and jerry cans weigh as much as 44lbs. Please I know it's a hard time to donate but just look how lucky you are to have the life you do. All they are asking for is 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.
