The Thirst Project

The Thirst Project is a nonprofit organization that works with the support of young people to END the global water crisis by building freshwater wells in developing communities that need safe, clean drinking water. Why water? Health and Sanitation: Waterborne diseases kill more children every single year than AIDS, Malaria, and all world violence combined.

When a student gains perspective on an issue as big as the global water crisis, amazing things happen! In just six years the Thirst Project has spoken to over 300,000 students, and STUDENTS have been the driving force in helping raise over 8 million dollars, giving clean water to 13 different countries and over 280,000 people!

Utah-Idaho District

The Utah-Idaho District is committed to supporting the Thirst Project by fundraising throughout the district. Specifically, during the month of October, we will launch a Thirsty Thirty Campaign across all K-Family branches. More information will be available in early September.

For now, be sure to book a visit with a road warrior from the Thirst Project. Contact traciemae@thirstproject.org.
