The knowledge and ability exists today to have clean water available to all people. It should be a right, and should be at the forefront of our efforts. There are countless deficiencies in the world today, and their importance should not be detracted from. I believe this is the best place to start.
Clean water for all people would mark the single greatest accomplishment in the history of human-kind thus far. It would reflect a shift in attitudes toward our own kind, and mark the beginning of a new era, with implications we could never fully understand until it came.
When we are born, we are all the same. There are basic necessities deserved to us all. The more we close the gap, the better off are we all.

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.
