A facebook friend of mine lost power for three days and had to carry buckets of water from a neighbor's house who had a generator. In other areas of the world, there are women and children who have to daily walk for hours to get drinking water. This summer I am teaching a STEM course to middle school students called, The Power of Water Challenge. I hope to instill in these students a desire to help provide fresh drinking water to others who are in need. I hope they will be inspired to create their own fundraising page to share with their friends and family.
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.
