Since 2015, we have led an effort to fund clean water wells for over 1,000 people in Africa.

Our Mission

North Allegheny School District’s Project Water, based north of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, is an initiative originally founded by Joshua Thomas and his friends, MJ Barton, Dave Bjorklund, and Ben Cinker in 2015 to provide clean water to developing villages in Africa. Since then, it has become an independent student-led organization designed to support the identified needs of these villages around the world. To date, over $60,000 have been raised through our fundraising efforts, including our annual dodgeball tournaments. United with our community, teachers, and peers, we know that we can make a difference.


Every year, I’m amazed at the positive impact that students at NA can have on families and lives around the world
