275,000 Lives Changed...and Counting

 

Over the last 12 years, with your support, we’ve been able to transform the lives of more than 275,000 people across 80+ water projects in East Africa. All while maintaining a 100% project success rate, compared with the industry average of 40%.

 

But, there are still many more communities and people in need of clean water. 

 

With your help, we will raise $250,000 through the gala -- enough to scale our water projects in 2022 and reach 16,000 more people with lasting clean water.

 

Together, we can ensure our partner communities in East Africa can not only survive, but THRIVE!
