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.
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'm so impressed with the organizational aspects of this firm. I feel like my donations are being used for their intended purpose, and the fact that they track progress is important to me. Thanks for all you do!
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.
TheWaterProject.org displays information about people who live without the significant necessitie of water every single day. Not only do they let you know, but they let you help. You can create your very own fundraiser online and have a fundraising page for it. The Water Project inc. also teaches people about people with desperate need of food or water. It teaches us that of the 75% of water on this planet, only 3% of that water is freshwater, and only less than 1%of that freshwater is not glaciers or ice. This information gets a lot of people inspired and willing to help out, heck it got me wanting to help out.
Review from Guidestar
The Water Project and Living Water International, what wonderful work they have done, and will continue to do, in the future.
The most wonderful organization ever established. Every cent goes to provide wells in areas of the world where fresh water is scarce. When you give - you support growth, happiness, freedom and friendship in a village filled with authentic appreciation.
We have been working with The Water Project for quite a while now! Through that organization we have been able to learn a lot about what is happening, regarding water, in less developed countries. We wanted to make a difference! Through The Water Project we now have the means to sponsor a well in Sierra Leone, Africa!
Water is the most abundant compound on Earth's surface, covering about 70%. It is essential for all living things. Without it, people would suffer needlessly. Nearly 1,000,000,000 people don’t have access to clean, safe drinking water. This is why each citizen should do his/her part in providing clean and safe drinking water for those who don’t have it.
Could there be any way to help this cause?
Well, I know a certain organization that does. It is called “The Water Project, Inc.” It helps fund safe water projects around the globe. I have raised $350 which I am donating through The Water Project to a specific water project in Rwanda. It will fund the construction of wells and will take about 6-8 months to complete. This will help the people of Rwanda tremendously. That’s why I think that The Water Project, Inc is a very good organization. So please take some time to visit its website- thewaterproject.org.
My name is Elizabeth and I am twelve years old. I had to pick a world issue for english and I had to do something about it. I chose to raise money so that I could help people in india and africa get clean water. The project ended up being fun and taught me a lesson. The lesson: be thankful for what you have.
