Diseases from unsafe water and lack of basic sanitation kill more people every year than all forms of violence, including war. Your donation will help change that.

Private donors cover our operating cost so that 100% of all public donations can go directly to water project costs.

Hi, I'm Makena Sciocchetti. For my 13th birthday I decided to donate to charity: water. My goal is to reach $1,000. I wanted to do this because I have had first hand accounts with people around the world not having clean water. I've lived in Korea and West Africa, plus gone to multiple other countries, all having a problem with clean water.

Many people around the world don’t have the luxury of having clean water. Every day, about 1,400 children die from diseases caused by unsafe water and poor sanitation. But it doesn’t have to be that way. There are simple solutions like drilled wells, spring protections and BioSand filters that help provide clean water to communities around the world.

100% of your donations will be used to build clean water projects, and when they’re complete, charity: water will send us photos and GPS coordinates so we can see the exact community we helped.

It would be an honor if you'd join me in helping more people get clean water. Thank you for considering!

Thank you so much,
Makena Sciocchetti
