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.
Terrific giver experience. Unmatched in the care of givers and demonstrating ongoing impact of gifts, regardless of size.
I had the opportunity to spend a semester interning at The Water Project in the Spring of 2017. It was a great experience that allowed me to work closely with passionate individuals who work tirelessly every day to change lives. I experienced first-hand the dedication and commitment The Water Project shows to all the communities it works with. The employees are very friendly, inviting, and will answer any questions about the work they do!!
I think that this charity is amazing in everyway. They are willing to help you to get donations in anyway you want,through media, schools and even churches and neighborhoods. I have trusted this charity to give all my school donations to, and they were woth the trust. Also i got all the details about my project as soon as the money arrived( photos, video and locations). If you want a charity to help, i recommend The Water Project so much
As a volunteer I have never met more kind and passionate people who sincerely love their job! It's an amazing cause and a fantastic environment to be a part of!
This organization does an incredible amount of good in this world. They have great communication about their projects so that we all know where our money is helping people. And they have great customer service if you have any questions or problems.
Great cause. Good communication to show the work with projects on going and complete.
I purchased $150 of gift cards for family and friends to donate back to the water project. I have been giving them out over the year with reusable water bottles. It was brought to my attention that none of these cards have valid URLs on them. The organization pocketed $150 of funds.
We're truly sorry that you experienced a temporary glitch on our website. As soon as it was brought our attention it was resolved. We hope you'll try those cards again and are able to see the impact of your gift! If you have any questions at all please contact us at email@example.com so we can help you personally.
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.
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 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!
Everyone at The Water Project is passionate and enthusiastic about their work. It is a fun and collaborative environment in which great work is done.
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.
It came to me one day, about the deaths from not even having water and has put me on fire. I cannot believe man`s inhumanity to man. The world has enough of everything and we could end the needless deaths right now, if only. One person at a time if thats how it has to be. Many blessings. (Human Being Flag Dotcom)
Its amazing how many causes go right to the roof and have so much exposure and most get on the band wagon and then they get awareness, I support many of these causes. When it comes to the causes of humanbeings, their Dignity, Respect, Equality and their rights, like their right to live, eat, be safe, grow and develop and not be exploited or abused, we fall very short. It seems that if we are not subjected to these unfortunate situations, we pretend they do not happen. We can stand united to yell and protest about freedom of speech and yet we can let others die because they have no food or drinking water. We who have been blessed to not have been born in a third world country pretend that most have what we have. If we are destitute there is hope, we can go to a soup kitchen or a food bank or a government agency and receive some help. Other countries do not have these. How is it , that as humanbeings we can sleep at night knowing that others will die because they have nothing??????????? Talk about mans inhumanity to man. Please help others less fortunate. Please love. Please care. Please let your voice be heard. Please , please, stand up for those who do not have choices.
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.
