You might think that your contribution is just a drop of water in a vast ocean, but each drop has a

ripple effect

that together combines to create a movement.

Over the past 14 years, you have helped us transform over 60 communities throughout rural Ethiopia. Together we have raised over $4 million dollars which means over 400,000 people have clean water for life.

You have helped turn small ripples into great waves.

These communities have been working hard to continue transforming themselves! Join us once again as we partner with more communities across rural Ethiopia this year.
