With your help, we believe we can do this. With your help, we can give water. With your help, we can give life.
By providing a community with safe drinking water, disease rates can drop by up to 88% virtually overnight! Child mortality rates can drop up to 90%- overnight! Clean water also plays an incredibly critical role in effectively treating and managing HIV/AIDS in rural communities. Women and children spend on average six to eight hours each day walking to fetch water. The average distance that women and children in developing communities walk to fetch water is 3.75 miles. The time children spend collecting water keeps them from going to school and getting and education.
Thirst Project is the world’s leading YOUTH water activism organization. We are a movement of high school and college students who build freshwater wells in developing nations and impoverished communities to provide people with safe, clean water. Thirst Project is a nonprofit organization that travels across the United States speaking at schools to educate students about the global water crisis and challenges them to fundraise to build wells.
Thirst Project has raised over $8 Million and funded projects to provide over 280,000 people with safe, clean water! The goal with Thirst Project is to provide safe, clean water and sanitation to the entire nation of Swaziland by 2022.
