Help Fund a Water Project

Together, we can unlock potential in a developing community by providing clean, safe water.

We are four eighth grade students eager to supply safe water for people in Sierra Leone through funding a clean water well. For the past several months, we've been studying about the global water crisis and have decided we want to make a difference. The four of us are interested in bringing a well to a community in need and are committed to raising the money to do so.

To follow our team's progress, visit Thank you for your donation -- we'll be sure to send you pictures of the well you've helped fund.

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.
