The money you raise in this year’s World Vision 40 Hour Challenge will change everything for children who urgently need clean water close to home. 

You’ll give students hand washing stations with running water and soap so they can protect themselves from diseases. You’ll help children learn how to use water safely so it doesn’t make them sick. You’ll build new water systems so entire villages have clean water close to home. You’ll bring emergency water to refugee camps so children searching for safety have clean water to drink. You’ll train local people to help keep clean water flowing for years to come.

Every drop of action counts.

Thank you for taking on the role of group organiser. Our work wouldn't be possible without your hard work and dedication!
