"Clean, safe drinking water is scarce. Today, nearly 1 billion people in the developing world don't have access to it. Yet, we take it for granted, we waste it, and we even pay too much to drink it from little plastic bottles."
"Water is the foundation of life. And still today, all around the world, far too many people spend their entire day searching for it."
"In places like sub-Saharan Africa, time lost gathering water and suffering from water-borne diseases is limiting people's true potential."
"Education is lost to sickness. Economic development is lost while people merely try to survive. But it doesn't have to be like this. It's needless suffering."
I have been lucky enough to have grown up with clean water to drink, clean water to cook with, clean water to shower in, even clean water to hydrate the garden and lawn with. Chances are, if you are reading this, you were too.
I know we are all busy, I know we all have battles of our own. But if we can spare only a few minutes and just a few dollars each, we have the chance to help others to have the same.
I am asking anyone to give what they can and help me with this cause. My aim is to one day go over and see it for myself and because that is just not possible yet, I want to do my bit for now and I would be so appreciative if my friends and family joined in.
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.
