We’re on a mission to bring clean drinking water to every person on the planet. And with the support of incredible people like you, we’ve funded 16,277 water projects in 24 countries so far.
When a community gets access to clean water, it can change just about everything. It can improve health, increase access to food, grow local economies, and help kids spend more time in school.
On July 23, 2011, nine-year-old Rachel Beckwith was killed in a tragic car accident. After her death, thousands of people all around the world donated to her mycharity: water fundraising page, and over the course of a month, raised over $1.2 million in Rachel’s honor. That money is now helping 37,770 people get access to clean water. In honor of the anniversary of Rachel’s death, Rachel’s mom, Samantha, and her grandparents, Richard and Roseanne, visit Ethiopia with charity: water to meet some of the people Rachel helped.
