Who We Are
The Water Project, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization bringing relief to communities around the world who suffer needlessly from a lack of access to clean water and proper sanitation.
What We're Doing
We're Providing Access to Clean Drinking Water, with Your Help!
Did you know that nearly 1 billion people don't have clean, safe water to drink? We didn't.
When we learned about the crisis, and that a few people can actually make a huge impact, we decided to get involved. Today we're working in five countries helping hundreds of new people find access to safe water and sanitation every week by funding water wells and other safe water projects.
How We Help
We tell stories. The story of water, the story of change, and the story of hope. These stories inspire people to raise the money needed to build wells and other water projects at schools, medical centers, churches and other public places in under-developed nations.
When people get involved and act, we're able to connect them directly to the projects and the people doing the work. We show where every dollar is spent. We show the outcome. And when it doesn't work out, we'll show that too. After all, this work isn't easy.
With monies raised, our partners in the field can do the digging and construction needed to provide clean, safe water efficiently and sustainably. They also mobilize, train, and follow-up with local communities, helping ensure long-term success.
We work closely with our partners around the world who identify, implement, report on and follow up on every project. That's how we share the whole story with you and hopefully inspire confidence in the work being done and the impact it has.
Why We're Doing It
We're Christians and we believe Jesus makes a clear call to "provide a cup of cold water" and to answer the needs of those who say "I am thirsty" (Matt 25).
Our belief motivates our action. It doesn't limit our reach.
That said, it's important to note that we work with everyone, for everyone. Our belief motivates our action. It doesn't limit our reach. It forms the basis of our integrity and the assurance that lives can be truly changed.
We work hard to help you help others. Our goal is to make sure your generous gifts are put to the best possible use. We want to see lives changed through hope restored.
We believe that providing clean water restores hope by enabling our partners to make a "whole-life impact" in the communities they serve through their broader development activity. We desire to see access to clean water enable schools to thrive, people to get back to work, farming to provide enough food to earn a living, and suffering to be alleviated as health improves.
We believe the issues facing Africa, India and other under-developed parts of the world are not simply today's problems. We know that a lack of clean water stands in the way of tomorrow's hope. And we're sure that together we can change that.
