Turning Visions into Reality
Giving back is a major part of the culture that Lenika teaches.
Years ago God gave her a vision that one day she would be funding projects that allowed wells to be drilled in dry places. She is proud to announce that she has partnered with The Water Project, allowing her vision to be a reality. These donations and the clean water that results help improve health, save time, provide education, and empower women.

Did you know that more people die from catching diseases from dirty water than in all forms of violence, including war? 43% of those deaths are children under age five. With clean water and sanitation, around 16,000 lives are saved each week worldwide.
Did you know that women in Africa spend over 40 billion hours a year walking to get water? With access to clean water, communities have more time to grow food, earn an income, and go to school. Because women collect 72% of the water in Sub-Saharan Africa, having clean water close to home allows women to spend that time in wiser ways, like starting businesses and taking a more active role in their own futures.
There’s no nice way to put it—we’re in the midst of a global water crisis.
Today, over 300,000,000 people don’t have access to safe, drinkable water…and that’s the best case count in Africa alone!
But there’s hope…
It doesn’t have to be this way. That’s the good news. Since we got started in 2006, The Water Project has been working with people just like you to help communities all over the world gain access to clean, safe water by providing training, expertise and financial support for water project construction. To date, we’ve helped build over 1,000 water projects in countries like Burkina Faso, Kenya, Rwanda, Sierra Leone and Uganda.
To further her devotion to her faith, each Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, Lenika joins other inspiring women for a Lifeline Prayer Call at 5:30 AM EST. You’ll find the number and pin to join below.
