I've worked in the sector for 17 years as everything from well driller to operations director to communications director. I got to personally see The Water Project's work in Kenya and it was the most transformative work I've ever seen. It was everything everyone in the water sector says they are in terms of improving economy, agriculture, hygiene, environment, livestock, etc. few water projects really do impact all these areas but this TWP work was.

Last year, I was able to work as an intern at The Water Project through my school. I found the organization to be very well-run by a friendly staff who truly care about their cause (as well as an adorable office dog). Highly recommended!

We have donated to The Water Project for a number of years. They are good stewards of their resources. We are happy to share with others , not as fortunate as we are, with the resources we have been given so they too can have clean water.

These guys set aside everything else to partner with people in Africa, empowering the to build wells and water. We often ignore the depth of need. They jumped in both feet to help!

I worked as an unpaid intern for The Water Project and immediately noticed that everyone had an outstanding work ethic. This non-profit is one that does everything in it's power to stay true to its goal; to help people in need. The Water Project is certainly a diamond in the rough and I feel proud I could be a part of their team.

The transparency and quality of work upheld by The Water Project is top notch in the water sector. They put people first and pour themselves out to develop others toward their full potential in eradicating the water crisis and strengthening communities. Incredible reporting and donor communication!

The Water Project has been an amazing partner for us. They are second to none when it comes to organizations that truly care for their cause and the cause of their partners. We intend on being a partner and doner for them for years to come.

Great ministry helping people in real, practical ways! Through The Water Projects multi-media sources online, my elementary-aged children were able to understand and empathize with the basic and dire need of people in other communities to have drinkable water. My son and daughter and their friends worked together to tell others and raising money for a specific water project in Africa.

I love that The Water Project links donors to a specific well or project in a specific community. Even though the results are on a real-life timetable and not instant, it is wonderful when you eventually see photographs and video of an actual community enjoying the completed project you directly helped fund.
