Since the beginning of time, access to clean water is essential to sustain life. However, as modern day technology advances, many third world countries can’t afford or receive clean drinking water. Contaminated water can cause disease, poor personal hygiene and affect a person’s overall health. 

The water crisis inspired a group of friends in Southern California to begin a nonprofit organization in order to provide aid to third world countries and spread awareness. 

Four years ago, the Thirst 项目 formed a partnership with Key Clubs nationwide. The campaign was titled 口渴y 30 and its purpose was to raise funds to build water projects. 

The 口渴 项目 has raised about 10 million dollars in 13 countries, with the help of 413,427 people and has completed 3,800 projects since its inception.

“There’s no sewer lines like what we have here in the United States and not everyone has water lines that work or they don’t have any water lines that bring safe and clean drinking water to some of the villages,” said Special Education Department Chair Ginger Balboni. 

Overall, the 口渴 项目 has impacted many third world countries in nearly 12 years.
