There are almost a billion people in the world without enough water.
Right now, there is an intense famine in places like Kenya and Somalia because there wasn’t enough water for crops and animals to survive. In other places, it is a lack of clean water that leads to deadly disease. In others, women and children spend all day walking to get water for their family instead of working or going to school.
charity: water is working to change all of this. Their plan is simple. They create a water project that will best serve a community that needs it. It might be a well, it might be purifying water, it might be a rainwater collection system. Projects take about 18 months to complete, but you can use Google Earth technology to view the project you worked to fund. A donation of $20 helps connect one person to water.
For my birthday, please support my charity: water project.
