When I realized that Americans spend $450 Billion on Christmas gifts that will end up in the landfill, while 1 in 8 people in the world do not have clean, disease-free water to drink, my conscience just wouldn't let me ignore it!
If everyone would just reduce their Christmas spending by a measly 4% and give that money to build wells, the problem would be solved.
I'm not rich. My kids don't get much for Christmas, but they do have Christ, and they also have water to drink!

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.
