When looking at just our every day, day-day life, the importance of water can not be ignored: from cooking; to cleaning; and all the way to looking beautiful, water plays such a vital role. The good old saying goes: you can survive upto a week without food, but not more than 3 days without water.The importance of this is heightened when we see that without water, even the most simplest of tasks (such as washing our faces and cooking gravy) are put at a standstill. Realistically speaking, when even the flowers cease to blossom without water, how then are we expected to survive without it? You see, the problem lies when we're fortunate to have been living in a developed country, where access to water is unlimited. But only when something is taken away, do we realise the true worth of it. Hence it is probably also this 24/7 access to water that causes the bounty of water to be overlooked. Imagine a day without water. The struggle of even conversing with someone (due to unpleasant breath, caused by difficulties in brushing the teeth) would be real. But these Africans aren't trying to make indelible impressions- all they want is to improve the quality of their lives; by simply sustaining themselves, and keeping themselves hydrated. Is that too much to ask for? It's honestly not fair how water is misused abusively by us, whilst the Africans have to undertake journeys that comprise of hours and hours of hardship, just to quench their thirsts. Therefore, as a team, we decided to unite together with a common goal: to build water wells in some of the most deprived areas of Africa. We're not promising that our contribution will change everyone's situation drastically, but we are promising the satisfaction of putting that smile behind these unfortunate children's/adults' faces. But "team work makes the dream work" and so we need as much help as we can get: even the smallest of donations will be significant to impact someone's life positively. Remember, "every little helps" . So let's do this together: let's give them a better day; let's change their lives forever; and let's give them a chance for...life!
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.
