Welcome to Project Clean Water!
In 1997, I founded Project Clean Water - a non-profit charity foundation that is working to improve the quality of life for millions of people by helping to provide clean water on a global scale. Nearly one billion people worldwide don't have access to clean, safe water resulting in 3.4 million deaths each year. We target villages around the world with clean water problems, and we work with the communities to find sustainable solutions to provide them with safe drinking water. To date we have helped over 40 communities overcome their individual drinking water problems in 15 different countries, on 5 different continents.
I am very excited to announce that Project Clean Water recently formed a partnership with the Voss Foundation and Virgin Unite to support water projects in sub-Saharan Africa. We are calling this partnership "Give a Drop." Since the formation of our partnership and of "Give A Drop," we have provided 7 clean water access points in Mali, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, and Ethiopia. Our most recent project together has been the construction of a solar powered water system at the Good Future and Hope orphanage in Nakisunga, Uganda. I am so pleased to be able to help. For more information on these projects, visit Voss Foundation and Give a Drop.
I became interested in clean water when I was 18 and lived in my car. I had sick kidneys and had to drink 2 gallons of purified water a day. I could not afford to buy much bottled water, and it dawned on me that if it was this hard to get clean drinking water in the United States, then it was probably a huge global issue. Boy, was I right.
Solutions and technologies exist to provide clean, affordable drinking water anywhere in the world. These solutions will save lives, reduce financial burdens, foster peace, and relieve millions of people from worrying about their next drink of water.
