We are excited about our wonderful Water Project. We are helping to build a well for people in Kenya, Africa. There are over 1,000,000,000 people ( that's 1 billion people!) who do not have clean water to drink. They are drinking dirty water which makes them sick an die. We hope to give these people a better life. We are taking the water challenge for 2 weeks, and ask you to do this, too. You will only drink water or milk for two weeks and donate the money you would have used for a soda or some other drink to the Water Project. The dates of the project is from March 15-March 29, 2012.
Did you know that it only takes $10 to give 1 person clean water in Africa for 10 years? We wish we could give enough money to Kenya to dig a well and kids would be well and could go to school again.
Thank you for helping us!

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.
