Run for Water is an organization that has been involved in a movement that has activated thousands of people to become ambassadors, creating awareness about global water-drinking conditions. Fighting for the basic right that everyone is entitled to clean and accessible drinking water Ethiopia, Africa is Run for Water’s first destination. For 12 years, over 100,000 lives in 50 plus communities have been changed by the simple gift of clean water, reducing and preventing illness and death. As these communities are empowered to thrive independently, they are led out of injustice and poverty

Run for Water was seeking innovative ways to spread its reach and awareness more globally, and discovered the huge benefits of bitcoin for philanthropic purposes. Since December 2018, Run for Water has partnered with BitGive to host the fundraising campaign on GiveTrack- BitGive’s first non-profit Bitcoin Donation Platform. The opportunity to fundraise in bitcoin on the platform allows us to enhance transparency by educating donors with user-friendly and high-level evidence-based reporting.

We are honoured to be working with the entire team at BitGive, and very excited to expand to a global and digital network that is using technology and innovation as a force for social impact!

For over a decade, Run for Water has fundraised over $3 million dollars and has helped tens of thousands of people by bringing clean water to Ethiopian villages. This project is specifically focused on helping the community of Waraba by providing an underground freshwater spring-well. Currently, the community is using the local river as a water source, causing illness and serious water-borne diseases that are particularly aggressive with children. This will be the first project partnering with BitGive in the hopes of funding the entire clean water project utilising bitcoin and blockchain technology.


We've started the Waraba development and will be providing updates on progress shortly! While we have some great traction with the campaign thus far, we still need the crypto community's help in reaching our goal.

Please check out the Waraba project on GiveTrack and donate today: https://www.givetrack.org/project-details/9/Water-for-Waraba
Check out our blog post here to learn more about the community of Waraba: https://www.bitgivefoundation.org/guest-blog-water-for-waraba-series-part-1-waraba-anticipating-water/

Thank you for your support, and for helping us be part of this revolution in philanthropy!

Hi and thanks for commenting! We do not have a way to donate to donors. I'm not sure I understand the need for donating to the people that donate. Is the ask to donate bitcoin to someone that has already donated bitcoin to a project on GiveTrack? Or is the ask to give bitcoin to someone who will then donate that bitcoin to a project on GiveTrack?

Apologies for the confusion.

All the best,

I think we need to stop drawing water from under the ground, it is causing some major problems, and increasing desertification. The Chinese are starting to provide desalination plants, and this would seem to be a better solution. It provides a pretty marginal reduction in sea levels, but more importantly, it starts to replace the groundwater, and can lead to reforestation if managed correctly.

Throughout the world there is scarcity of water. Country's that have planned infrastructure for the rain water harvesting were the one that fulfills their needs unlike any climate change. The groundwater level keeps going down, but desalination can't be made effective in all the countries. In my country we've desalination plants, but lack of perfect infrastructure plan has caused scarcity of water as we haven't got regular rainfall percentage.

I just searched for the Waraba town and first I thought it didn't exist outside the "Run for Water" campaign. But the FAO mentions it as a village in Amhara region, so the project could be legit (one has to be cautious here in the Bitcoin community, due to all the bad experiences ...).

Mainly I searched for it to know about the climate of the region, to answer @Jet Cash's post. It seems however a pretty green place, so I guess it could have a humid climate (which seems to be confirmed by the Wikipedia entry about Amhara region), and thus desalination wouldn't be an option for it (anyway, Ethiopia has no coastline, so there aren't any significant saltwater resources). Anyway, if the intention of the project is to improve the water supply technology, any efficiency improvement is also a step in the correct direction as this way less water gets lost on the way to the consumers.

BTW: What could be cool woud be a subforum for donation requests like these, I searched in the Marketplace and there doesn't seem such a category. The problem with "Bitcoin Discussion" is that threads with serious intentions get often buried under trivial topics, and it isn't also really the place for these topics.

Thanks for your interest in the community and doing your due diligence...that is important!

The community of Waraba is in the Oromia region and it's GPS coordinates are 5°07'20.8"N 40°57'05.9"E  (this can be found on the GiveTrack: https://www.givetrack.org/project-details/9/Water-for-Waraba). It is a very remote community, which is why it can be challenging to find on a map and to find information about online. We, in partnership with imagine1day in Ethiopia, identified Waraba as the community to work with after an in-depth survey with the community. While the government provides baseline data on each community, imagine1day goes above and beyond by going into each community to assess their needs. Waraba was identified as one of the most vulnerable communities based on its lack of access to any clean water source. The community has been asking its local government for support to get a water source a long time, but the government said they weren't able to provide the funds for at least 5 years. The stream they are currently relying on is shared with the animals and is often contaminated, meaning that 5 years is extending the serious risk to the community too long!

I understand that there are alternatives to providing water in different regions around the world, but the local water engineers in Ethiopia are the ones who create a feasible and sustainable system for each community. The community itself is involved in the process from the very beginning; moreover, they are part of planning, designing, implementing, decision making, monitoring and evaluating the project at all stages. This sense of ownership is critical to the longterm maintenance of the system.

We did just have a few of the Run for Water representatives visit the community, so if you have any specific questions I am happy to get the answer for you  Smiley

i do agree with the fact that this kind of initiative will just be forgotten and buried. maybe move it to marketplace > service announcements (the closest that i think of) -https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?board=84.0

also this type of crowdsourcing needs good exposure not only in this community but other communities or platforms that might get interested in donating some of their extra cash to fulfil the mission of the project. a noble work but sometimes they are often ignored by capable individuals.

We couldn't agree more! We're excited about the long term opportunities to expand the usage of Bitcoin from end-to-end in philanthrophy (from donor to water engineer in our case). BitGive and GiveTrack have done an excellent job setting up the infrastructure but now we need to get on the ground and work with the communities and the individuals. One of the biggest challenges we have seen in the best is setting up a bank and a bank account for the beneficiaries so they can receive the funds for their work. This is extremely important what empowering local works; however, Bitcoin allows for a new way to empower the individuals and streamline the access and flow of value! This project is our first step in expanding awareness in Ethiopia, and with the hope that this fundraising campaign is successful, we think it's the start of a long term revolution in the community and many others!!

Thanks for your support.

I already donated a lot of money to https://thewaterproject.org/donate-bitcoin and what I like about their service is that they are accepting 4 other Alt coins for donations too.  Wink I got some FREE fork coins after the Bitcoin fork and I donated a lot of the BCash that I received to their water projects.  Wink  <They also generate a receipt that you can use for tax purposes>

I see your site wants you to login with Social media accounts and that might be an option that some people would want to avoid. Staying anonymous, helps people to prevent situations where information about them might get into the wrong hands <scammers> and that they might get bombarded with fake sites that wants "donations" for fake projects.  Angry

It provides a pretty marginal reduction in sea levels, but more importantly, it starts to replace the groundwater, and can lead to reforestation if managed correctly.
The earth is suspended on water. Drawing from the ground seems plausible, especially where the borehole option is mostly available to Africa (Ethiopia is in Africa).

Staying anonymous, helps people to prevent situations where information about them might get into the wrong hands <scammers> and that they might get bombarded with fake sites that wants "donations" for fake projects.  Angry   
I also observed that too and wondered if a fresh account would get an attention when it has to do with monetary donations. But I think the OP is getting attention already. It's a welcome development.

The impact of bitcoin on the world would have gone more than this if all those moneys generated by the projects that have been established were actually used. There has been lots of great concept that those altcoins had, and if they had been well utilized, government would have felt the positive impact of it heavily.

This a very good project and this shows that the team are really serious and dedicated, this kind of project is actually a unique one because water is what people need to survive, and people who are being supported by this project would really be happy to have a liberation of what they have been longing for long time ago. I will actually be very glad to support this project also provided they promise to be transparent and do exactly has they have promised.

A small contribution can seriously change the lives of many people. Not everyone was lucky in geographical location and the situation will only worsen. So this is a good start.

Every little bit helps, and if it's a different way for Bitcoin to make its mark, no matter how small, I'm all for it. Got friends from there, would love to visit one day, maybe check out the project.

BitGive is awesome btw!

P.S. OP: Move this to Projects, maybe more traction there. Can get buried in this section.

It's great that you accept donations in Bitcoin. Your project indeed sounds like a very important one. I live in a third world country, but access to clean drinkable water is just something we take for granted and tend to overuse. It's even hard to imagine how people leave in the distant and more geographically unfortunate regions, lacking such a simple and absolutely necessary thing for life as water. You being open to Bitcoin is nice, because such projects can help to make Bitcoin's reputation better. After all, it's money, and money can be used for all sorts of things.
Good luck!

I have long said that bitcoin can save the world. This is a good example of one use case
The impact of bitcoin on the world would have gone more than this if all those moneys generated by the projects that have been established were actually used. There has been lots of great concept that those altcoins had, and if they had been well utilized, government would have felt the positive impact of it heavily.

This a very good project and this shows that the team are really serious and dedicated, this kind of project is actually a unique one because water is what people need to survive, and people who are being supported by this project would really be happy to have a liberation of what they have been longing for long time ago. I will actually be very glad to support this project also provided they promise to be transparent and do exactly has they have promised.

Thank you so much, you're exactly right... Run for Water is a really serious and dedicated team and we have high hopes that through transparency we can convey that message to the crypto community and increase awareness and support for the communities in Ethiopia. The passion, enthusiasm, and motivation coming from Waraba is infectious and we hope that allowing individuals around the world to contribute and get frequent updates on the GiveTrack platform will spread the positivity.
To check out the progress the donations have made thus far, check out updates on GiveTrack:

P&G already develope an easy way to clean water, and is a cheap way. Or as they say 'A simple way to clean water'.

The process is simple, you add the P&G product to dirty water, and it gets chlorinated and solids precipitate, so you can just filter that an get clean water. 12 packs of this solution has a cost of $20 and each pack work for 10 liters. Is a nice solution, what do you think guys?

I am very happy to see that you are trying to raise fund for helping people who are short in water. I hope to see helping hands especially for all African countries in the future. They need immediate help more than other countries.

I already donated a lot of money to https://thewaterproject.org/donate-bitcoin and what I like about their service is that they are accepting 4 other Alt coins for donations too.  Wink I got some FREE fork coins after the Bitcoin fork and I donated a lot of the BCash that I received to their water projects.  Wink  <They also generate a receipt that you can use for tax purposes>

I see your site wants you to login with Social media accounts and that might be an option that some people would want to avoid. Staying anonymous, helps people to prevent situations where information about them might get into the wrong hands <scammers> and that they might get bombarded with fake sites that wants "donations" for fake projects.  Angry   



That's great that you are supporting The Water Project! They are our one of our earliest partners, and we supported three projects with them in Kenya over the years.

For donating other cryptos - GiveTrack has a direct integration with Uphold, and you can donate in now 50 different currencies - both crypto and fiat. Here's a list of all the supported currencies - https://support.uphold.com/hc/en-us/articles/202473803-Supported-currencies

GiveTrack also issues a receipt upon donating, once the transaction is confirmed on the bitcoin network.

You are not required to sign up via social media, it's provided as an option for those who enjoy the ease of that type of registration, but not necessary. You can sign up using an email address instead, and you can easily opt-in to be anonymous to the public, as a setting in your profile. Unfortunately US regulations require that we gather at least some information from a donor.

We are also GDPR compliant, which are the strictest data privacy regulations in the world, so your data is safe.

As a nonprofit ourselves, we've worked very hard to check all the boxes on a resource-constrained budget, and we are proud to offer all these different options, ways to donate, and services to further the use of bitcoin, cryptocurrency, and blockchain technology in the charitable sector.

In fact, such activities really deserve not only respect, but everyone should help everyone around them to live better.  We, the inhabitants of other countries and continents, where there is an abundance of natural resources, would like for the inhabitants of poor countries to also have access to the natural resources of our planet.  The announced projects should really be developed and supported not only by charitable organizations, but also by government agencies of other countries.  Please tell me where you can look at real results or information about the work done in specific countries?  In most cases, only bureaucratic norms and financial issues are discussed, but nobody speaks a word about what is happening on the ground.

Ethiopia has always have water issues, one of my country man is helping feed some kids over there and providing a quality education. I read of how some persons do die of water scarcity in East Africa, so having a charity water project is nice. The technology of getting water through the air might be look into.

It's awesome to see some positive change and impact coming through Bitcoin and not us constantly hearing stories of scammers, hackers and criminals getting away with everything and training the name of Bitcoin all the time. Water is the most primary asset in my books and without it, we would all be toast anyway, so this is a welcome initiative and every village having fresh water, creates a sense of well being in all of us, not just for those who have been empowered and helped with this vital resource. I hope we can find more positive impact stories to read through and also when we have spare bits, be directly a part of. If all of us did a little to help, it would go a long way in changing how our world is shaped today.

I think we need to stop drawing water from under the ground, it is causing some major problems, and increasing desertification. The Chinese are starting to provide desalination plants, and this would seem to be a better solution. It provides a pretty marginal reduction in sea levels, but more importantly, it starts to replace the groundwater, and can lead to reforestation if managed correctly.
Ancient people is the one who knew that we could get water from the ground and it was used ever since that period up to now and now we are taking the toll of what they have exploited.
I think each country already laying down a plan to conserve ground water and recycle water from daily usage of people and rainfall which will greatly help in water shortage we are experiencing now.

It's really awesome to see cryptocurrency being used for donations and charities to help people around the world. Cryptocurrency were already given a bad image because of illegal activities and these kind of ways are great to bring the positive image of cryptocurrency to the public and to stop their wrong thinking about crypto being used only for crimes. I really appreciate those people who initiate these kind of activities and those who support and donate, I salute y'all. Are there any fund raising donations for the environment as well? 'Cause it's really a great movement.

many people who of course want to thank the water project that is run because they have donated clean water to people who really need it might make the poor happy again. This is a very good idea by making plans like that because they still care about people. it is different if we see now that some of their governments no longer fully view the poor who need the necessities of their daily lives only thinking of infrastructure.

where I live is not difficult to find water. but I believe in other parts of the world there are people who really need it and have difficulty getting it. and I am sure because of its scarcity it requires large funds for investment in equipment, and finding a large fund for this project is not easy. I really appreciate this project for adopting cryptocurrency for social needs, which gives people an understanding that cryptocurrencies are not always bad

Africa seems to depend on Bitcoin a lot lately and its good to see how Bitcoin can save so many people and provide them the useful necessary in order to survive. Its sad to see how many problems Africa has and how only a few of them are willing to be solved by those who are having power and money Sad but with Bitcoin we can all help the cause.

This is another thing that bring a good and use the Bitcoin for good. A lots of thigs are keep on coming the Bitcoin way but everything has its reason. And now, for this kind of activity or should I rather call, a project for bringing water to the people of Ethiopia, is a help that should be keep on doing using the presence of Bitcoin if that what can resolve for it.

In what way does Africa depend a lot on Bitcoin? I haven't seen much actual evidence of use in any country that's going through a rough time economically. It has been hyped up a lot in the last year or so, but not much has come out of it.

If we look at the LBC volumes of Venezuela for example, which according to people has seen an explosive growth of use and demand lately, the volume in us dollar has actually gone down instead of up.

I know that people would love to see Bitcoin help people in Africa and south America, but we shouldn't blindly follow what news outlets report about.... so much adoption happening according to them, yet no signs of evidence.

BSV is not the real Bcash. Bcash is the real Bcash.

This is a very wonderful innovative project that seek to give clean and good water to the masses. I will surely read more about this organization and I will be willing to contribute my quota to the organization.

I think this organization is running inside the continent of Africa only therefore more info about this organization is limited but i think they have an honest intention and their help offer is for real so hopefully many generous people inside the crypto environment will share their blessings too.

Thank you for sharing the good news about bitcoin, this will make bitcoin more accepted by the world. I'm actually not surprised to hear
that bitcoin can be an alternative payment for donations, in this case payment of donations for drinking water in the eastern African region
of Ethiopia. Hopefully with an alternative payment through bitcoin more and more people are giving donations to citizens of Ethiopia. Because
of that bitcoin is always called the asset of the future. Because bitcoin can help the lives of humankind, not too long ago there was unicef ​​news
to open an alternative payment via bitcoin too. This is strong evidence that bitcoin is indeed very useful for human life.

It provides a pretty marginal reduction in sea levels, but more importantly, it starts to replace the groundwater, and can lead to reforestation if managed correctly.

This is a great suggestion and environment-friendly, too. This is also what some developed countries are doing such as Singapore. The problem with this is that it costs too much for a charity organization which is highly dependent on donors. For sure, they cannot handle the costs for such an ambitious yet highly preferred option, especially if their target countries are located within the central parts of Africa. It would be impossible. Governments have the resources though to undertake such desalination projects.

I noticed that Bitcoin and crypto is rising as an alternative form of donation for charities such as this. I wish this project the best of success in the future. Africa really needs our care and attention.

Thank you for sharing this kind of topic. We already have unicef foundation for children that is receiving donation in form of cryptocurrency especially bitcoin then we have this bitgivefoundation that is a water for waraba project that also accepts bitcoin for donation. Though I dont have a big assets but I can share the links to my friends out there so they can also share their cryptocurrency blessings to the poor community in waraba. I wish that this project will be successful and will help thousands of poor people in that area.
We are so appreciative of your support and willingness to share the project within your network. Please let me know if we can help give you any other information that you'd find helpful while sharing!

This is another thing that bring a good and use the Bitcoin for good. A lots of thigs are keep on coming the Bitcoin way but everything has its reason. And now, for this kind of activity or should I rather call, a project for bringing water to the people of Ethiopia, is a help that should be keep on doing using the presence of Bitcoin if that what can resolve for it.
Another good news for everyone that will change our world, it will create crypto adoption in that country a will be a big help in crypto too. Little by little we are growing too fast, with this we are creating a world that changes everything , innovation and widely used will make Bitcoin adoption grow faster.

Run for Water is an organization that has been involved in a movement that has activated thousands of people to become ambassadors, creating awareness about global water-drinking conditions. Fighting for the basic right that everyone is entitled to clean and accessible drinking water Ethiopia, Africa is Run for Water’s first destination. For 12 years, over 100,000 lives in 50 plus communities have been changed by the simple gift of clean water, reducing and preventing illness and death. As these communities are empowered to thrive independently, they are led out of injustice and poverty

Run for Water was seeking innovative ways to spread its reach and awareness more globally, and discovered the huge benefits of bitcoin for philanthropic purposes. Since December 2018, Run for Water has partnered with BitGive to host the fundraising campaign on GiveTrack- BitGive’s first non-profit Bitcoin Donation Platform. The opportunity to fundraise in bitcoin on the platform allows us to enhance transparency by educating donors with user-friendly and high-level evidence-based reporting.

We are honoured to be working with the entire team at BitGive, and very excited to expand to a global and digital network that is using technology and innovation as a force for social impact!

For over a decade, Run for Water has fundraised over $3 million dollars and has helped tens of thousands of people by bringing clean water to Ethiopian villages. This project is specifically focused on helping the community of Waraba by providing an underground freshwater spring-well. Currently, the community is using the local river as a water source, causing illness and serious water-borne diseases that are particularly aggressive with children. This will be the first project partnering with BitGive in the hopes of funding the entire clean water project utilising bitcoin and blockchain technology.


We've started the Waraba development and will be providing updates on progress shortly! While we have some great traction with the campaign thus far, we still need the crypto community's help in reaching our goal.

Please check out the Waraba project on GiveTrack and donate today: https://www.givetrack.org/project-details/9/Water-for-Waraba
Check out our blog post here to learn more about the community of Waraba: https://www.bitgivefoundation.org/guest-blog-water-for-waraba-series-part-1-waraba-anticipating-water/

Thank you for your support, and for helping us be part of this revolution in philanthropy!


I love seeing projects like this, they show how much crypto can truly help. No talk about the price, speed, or anything like that, just an effort to solve a major issue and help someone who needs it.

You just need to make sure you have people you can trust on the other end who are receiving the bitcoin. The good thing about it is that you will know where the funds are going since it will be recorded on the blockchain for all to see.

It is good to see bitcoin making differences in peoples lives all over the world. This is what happened when we take the power from greedy banks and governments. We need more positive things like this for the media to see. THough the media would rather hear about the ugly since that is what sells best unfortenetly.

I know that people would love to see Bitcoin help people in Africa and south America, but we shouldn't blindly follow what news outlets report about.... so much adoption happening according to them, yet no signs of evidence.
LBC is not the only way to trade BTC, is it? There are other popular exchanges available for trading in Africa which decent volumes last I checked. Unstable economies are helping improve adoption there.

Places like Venezuela in particular are dependent on BTC in a big way thanks to economic issues there.

Adoption is rising in 3rd world countries slowly and steadily, but the adoption rates need to rise rapidly (Especially in big countries like India and China) in order to help BTC achieve mainstream popularity in the future.

Wow. I have seen lots of campaigns and running organizations that does something great but this is the first time for me to see that Bitcoin did somethinf wonderful for people of less privileged. This is the campaign that really attracts donations and call out for kind hearted people in the crypto world. Now we can see that the discussions we have and the signature or other campaigns can not be the only product of Bitcoin but also this kind of blessing. It adds even more perfume to Bitcoin's name and most importantly, people are given safe and potable water for their daily consumption.
