The Thirst Project
Almost 800-Million people on the planet do not have access to safe, clean water, and 4,400 kids under the age of five die every day from drinking dirty water.
The Thirst Project is the world’s leading YOUTH water activism organization: A movement of high school and college students building freshwater wells in developing nations and impoverished communities to provide people with safe, clean water.
A nonprofit organization, The Thirst Project travels across the United States speaking at schools to educate students about the global water crisis and challenge them to fundraise to build wells. In just five years, The Thirst Project has activated more than 300,000 students on over 320 campuses, and raised over $6-Million dollars. 100% of all public gifts go directly to funding freshwater wells on the ground. (The Thirst Project’s “Overhead”or “Administrative Expenses” are privately funded by a separate group of donors.)
