Water is a necessity people in developed countries take for granted. The average American is estimated to use 80-100 gallons per day. But, it's a different story in Sierra Leone. The life expectancy for the average Sierra Leonean is 56 years. Can you even imagine what that would be like? For most, the answer is no. The most effective solution to this tragic problem is to install clean water pumps in Sierra Leone. The water pollution can be named as one the main causes for Sierra Leoneans' short life expectancy. These clean water pumps are life-changing and can provide water to around 2,000-3,000 people, and can dramatically change peoples' lives. We need to help others who are not as privileged as you or I.

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!
