Our Mission:

End the global water crisis.

Thirst Project is the world’s leading YOUTH water activism organization. We are a movement of high school students who build freshwater wells in developing nations and impoverished communities to provide people with safe, clean water.

Our Impact

Safe water can reduce water-related deaths by up to 21%. Our preferred method of implementing in the field is to build hand pump freshwater wells. We don’t sell grand solutions or the latest and greatest million dollar schemes, but instead, simple things that work. Every time Thirst Project builds a well, we make sure that each community we build in has pit latrines for proper sanitation and safe waste disposal to eliminate open defecation practices. This can reduce water-related deaths by up to 37.5%. Broad Run Thirst Project has a single goal: build a well.

Broad Run STUDENTS have been the driving force in helping us raise over $6,400.
