Sulayman (age 8): "We are doing this to help the people who don't have anything and we are doing this project to help other people who are making water. We are doing this so that it is fair for the people who have water to give to the people who dont have water. Everybody needs water. And we get clean water. We have to help people who don't have clean water."
Yousuf (age 6): "Because they don't have water. So we need to give them money so that they can get water. And if you don't give them water then God won't be happy. If you have clean water then help them get water."
Backstory (from mom): I showed the kids a video about the drought in Somalia. The kids were sad and worried. What can we do? Why dont they have water! They were asking so many questions and were genuinely concerned about helping people get water. They had ideas from filling up empty water bottles and shipping to Somalia to trying to take a plumber to Africa to bring water. So we researched how to help build water wells and this is how this campaign came about. Do what you can with what you have. Every dollar can make an impact somehow. The above are exact quotes of theirs as we built this page together. Money donated here will go to help build a well in Kenya, Sierra Leone or Uganda.

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.
