charitywater1One billion people on the planet don’t have access to clean drinking water. That’s one in six of us. Water is such a basic need.  Sadly women and children in Africa walk for hours each day to obtain what little water they can find.  This means children go without an education.

charity: water is a non-profit organization bringing clean and safe drinking water to people in developing nations. 100% of public donations directly fund water projects.  Just $20 can give one person in a developing nation clean water for 20 years.

Many communities in developing nations often have a plentiful supply of clean water just below the ground, but no way to get to it. Drilling a well can cost from $4,000 – $ 12,000 and many living on less than $1 a day can not afford one in their community, even if the money is combined.

How can 100% of your donation go to drilling wells? It’s because private donors fund the administrative costs so you don’t have to. charity: water is a registered 501(c)(3) organization. All Donations are tax-deductible.  Prefer to make a monthly donation?  They can do that!  Enroll in monthly PayPal deductions for automatic payments.
