YOU Choose HOW We Use Your Money.

At Thirst Project, our incredible domestic/United States Board of Governors leads a dedicated group of donors, corporate sponsors, and partner organizations who give generously to cover 100% of our “overhead” or operating expenses, so that we can guarantee that 100% of public donations go to funding water projects on the ground. Similarly, The Thirst Project’s domestic/United States “Staff” is comprised 100% of volunteers who are employed by the separate partner organization, Legacy Youth Leadership International, and other organizations & groups who donate services to support Thirst Project’s work. Any and all of Thirst Project’s United States Operations are 100% donated and executed by the contributions of volunteers from similar support organizations.

2021 Financials

2021 was an incredible year of recovery & growth at Thirst Project. In a year that forced us to continue to navigate the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we are grateful that we never had to pause drilling & construction of any projects. We continued to prioritize providing the most vulnerable communities with access to safe, clean water, sanitation, and hygiene, making it possible to fight COVID-19. This year, we continued to deepen our relationships with the for-profit drillers we hire to work with the communities we work in to implement all of our water projects. These for-profit drillers complete all of this work under the direction of, and in coordination with, our In-Country Staff. These staffers are all nationals from their own country within which they work. As we have always done in the past, we invested heavily in these relationships in 2021, as well as growing our team specifically in the Kingdom of eSwatini last year.
