A Movement of Generosity
Waterboys is partnering with Speed the Light, a national youth ministry, and WorldServe International to create a youth movement dedicated to solving the clean water crisis in East Africa. Waterboys and Speed the Light youth have accepted the challenge to provide water for 50,000 people! The partnership will fund sustainable, solar operated deep borehole wells that will be constructed by implementing partner WorldServe International in communities throughout Tanzania.
Tanzania is one of the most water-stressed regions on the planet. Not only do women and children have to travel long distances to retrieve water every day, but many times it’s unsafe and contaminated, causing illness and death. Improving access to reliable water sources saves lives and offers opportunities that communities wouldn’t have otherwise.
Clean Water for 50,000 people
Speed the Light youth will use creative and unique ideas to fundraise in their communities, becoming leaders in providing safe, clean water to families that lack access. This group of dynamic students is committing to raise $250,000 to provide water to 25,000 people!
Joined by Waterboys youth Captain and Los Angeles Rams punter Johnny Hekker, Speed the Light Youth are inviting students from around the country to join the effort. With your help, Johnny and Waterboys have set the goal to raise another $250,000 to match Speed the Light’s commitment so that together we can provide water to 50,000 people by July 2020.Read the stories
Alone we can only do so much, but together we can change lives and transform communities.
