most of us take water for granted. we shouldn't because people all over the world might not have water. this project helps build wells and give water to africa and india where clean water is most needed.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

we have so many drinks to choose from here in america over there they don't even have clean water. i did the two week challenge and it was very difficult because we would drive by a fast food restaurant and i would want a shake or some fruit punch.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

i wouldn't i would just advertise it more.

My name is Madison. I am 19 years old and I live in Canada.
I believe that when you have something in life, you should share it.
So why wouldnt you share your basic need of water?
I started a fundraiser page and I plan on raising enough money to build an entire well.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I have not yet, but when the well is built that I donated to they track where it is and tell a story about it for you

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

be able to allow more people to physically help build the well.

There are really so many water-related organizations out there. You've got Charity:Water, Blood:Water, Water.org, and many many others. All of them, of course, do fantastic work. The reason I would recommend The Water Project specifically is this: The price of a well in India through The Water Project is only $1500 (more in Africa). The other water organizations I've mentioned above have wells that cost upwards of $5000. As co-chair of the student-run organization "Performers for Progress," I oversaw/directed a student benefit show that raised $5100 for The Water Project. Incredibly, this was enough for THREE wells (serving 2200 people in total). Whenever we called the organization with questions we had, it was always Peter Chasse, the president and founder, who answered our questions. I don't know for sure, but I imagine that with these larger organizations, getting in contact with an organization's founder is nearly impossible. The Water Project also posted photos on their site and gave us updates about the work being done. It is a truly incredible organization.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

...October 2009, when Performers for Progress (the organization I co-chaired), donated $5100, enough to build three wells in India for a total of 2200 people.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

...extremely helpful. Consider this: The only staffer I ever met was Peter Chasse, the president and founder! That kind of transparency is hard to find.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

...provide water for up to 5.3 million people! (Assuming a well in India costs $1500 and a large village contains about 800 people.)

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

One time

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
