Our Thirst Project Well

Right now, over 600 million people do not have access to safe, clean drinking water. More people die due to waterborne diseases than AIDS, malaria and all world violence combined. A child dies every 90 seconds from EASILY preventable diseases... all because they do not have access to basic clean water. But we can change all of that. Thirst Project is a movement of students all over the world, raising awareness about the global water crisis and helping to end it. Since 2008, students have raised over 10 million dollars and provided hundreds of thousands of people from 13 different countries with safe, clean drinking water. Thirst Project is 100% nonprofit, meaning ALL of the money we raise will be used to fund freshwater wells. With a freshwater well, women and children spend less time walking to collect water and more time getting an education and providing for their families. A well also improves economic productivity, and food security. It only takes $25 dollars to give someone clean water for life, and $12,000 funds an entire freshwater well for a community in need. Our class is trying to raise enough money to build a well to drastically change the quality of life in the community. Donations of any amount will contribute. Thank you
