Hi, my name is Sydney Risen. As a student interested in a health profession, I have spent time looking at how different aspects of our lives can affect our health. It is clear to me, as it should be to all of you, that clean, safe water is at the absolute base of a healthy community and country. As citizens of a first world country, we often take for granted our access to clean water. At the twist of a handle, we are given an endless supply of purified water at our homes, schools and workplaces. Many people shell out $2 or more for bottled water each day. If we all banded together and took just a few dollars, or more, we could implement an entire Water Project in a community in need. The positive benefits provided by a Clean Water Project are endless. Children are able to spend more time in school instead of walking miles for clean water. Safe water means clean hand and healthy bodies, preventing sickness and allowing people to spend time working, lifting themselves out of poverty. I urge you to consider donating what you can, to give not only a gift, but a necessity of life, that will keep on giving.
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.
