Water for Wellness: Quenching Africa's Thirst

Total Raised: $1,235.12

Help us Fund a Water Project

Together, we can unlock potential in a developing community by providing clean, safe water.

This semester, the class Health 280: Perspectives in International Health at Illinois Wesleyan University is fundraising for a charity we felt strongly about. The Water Project provides a basic human need; water. On a college campus it is something we take for granted, and we want to educate and raise awareness about the need for a clean water source in Africa. The money raised will help to not only build a well, but a sustainable system in a community in Africa.

Did you know nearly 1 billion people don't have safe water to drink?

Together, we can change that. Let's fund a new source of drinking water for those who suffer needlessly without it!

Our gifts will be used to construct or rehabilitate a water project, like a well or sand dam, in Africa. We'll see pictures, GPS coordinates, and updates as they come in from the actual water project we fund so we can celebrate the results along with the community we help.

Why It Matters

Access to clean, safe water unlocks potential

About The Water Project

The Water Project, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization unlocking human potential by providing clean, safe water to communities around the world who suffer needlessly without.

Working with local partners in countries like Kenya, Rwanda, Sierra Leone, South Sudan, and Uganda, we build long lasting water projects that are organized, owned and managed by the communities receiving them.

Together, with our partners we identify, implement, report on and follow up on every project. Then we share the whole story with you to inspire confidence in the work being done and the impact it has.
