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.
Our Brownie Troop chose the Water Project as their fundraising activity last year, and we are blown away by this group. We used their fundraising ideas and products - the girls appreciated being able to save their own money to donate (choosing water instead of juice/soda, and donating the money saved). It is a unique and interesting way to collect funds, and the updates from the beneficiaires has created a link, causing the Brownies to want to do more.
Thank you, The Water Project. We are enjoying our experience with you!
What this program is doing is really amazing. I have just started really trying to participate and i have started to understand how great this program is. Its really amazing that we are able to help these people, that through the water project we are able to get them the water they need.
I do not have any specific experience with this organization, but the follow up story on The World mentions some issues.
Thanks for posting a review, but I think you have the wrong organization. The Water Project does not install PlayPumps.
The Water Project is so cool. I found this iste by trying to help Africa becasue my school inpired me too. This site has inspired me in bieng the Chnage!
