Would you give your child a cup of water filled with pollution and disease? A cup of water that may end up killing them the next day? A cup of water where every sip could be a risk? Everyday children and family's are being forced to do this. Children, especially young girls, are being forced to sacrifice their education so that they can go and fetch water for their family's. The closest water source can be up to 6 kilometres away. Heavy loads of water are carried on their heads. This puts an overwhelming amount of pressure on their necks causing problems to their neck and spine over time. Despite all the hard work they go through to get the water. It's not even clean. It causes diseases like diarrhoea, cholera, dysentery, typhoid and polio. Without clean water there is also a lack of sanitation helping these diseases spread. When you donate, wells are able to be built.

Every sip counts. Donate today and save lives.

How this works

Dirty water impacts health, education, women, and income. Providing a reliable and safe water source allows communities to thrive.

The Water Project provides access to safe and reliable water across sub-Saharan Africa. Together, our support can end the water crisis and restore hope, one community at a time.

The coolest part? We'll all get to see our impact! Every gift is directly linked to a specific water project and community. We'll receive updates including photos and stories, maps and more!

Lives change when communities gain access to clean water. Let's experience it together. Make a donation to my fundraising campaign today!
