Today, too many children suffer needlessly - walking miles for dirty water that makes them sick.

Did you know;

Nearly one billion people do not have access to clean, safe water - that's the equivalent of 1 in 8 people on the planet!

For women and children especially, this crisis is real. It effects every minute of the day.

With unclean water sources often miles from villages, many of the able-bodied members of a community are forced to spend hours each day simply finding and transporting water. The typical container used for water collection in Africa, the jerry can, weighs over 40 pounds when it's completely full.

The equivalent of a 5-year-old child for three hours out of each day. Some women carry up to 70 pounds in a barrel carried on their back. That's like carrying a baby hippo.

When you give to help build a well, you'll make sustainable agriculture possible. You will allow children to get back to school instead of collecting dirty water all day.

Our goal is to bring clean, sustainable water supplies to within a 1km (1/2 mile) of a village.

You can help break the cycle of poverty.
