Water Works

An American girl’s journey

 to bring clean water to Africa

Sawyer Anderson

Author, Artist, Philanthropist, Speaker

After learning about the tragedy many families are facing in simply obtaining water, ten-year-old Sawyer wanted to help. Shocked, she thought “this isn’t fair, every kid should have water.” Compelled to find a way to make a difference from her cozy, modern home in West Fargo, ND, she set out to raise $50.00 selling her grandma’s cookies at a garage sale. What followed was an inspiring story of hope and the innocence of a child who believed she could change one small part of the world.  Sawyer created a children’s book called “Water Works” to illustrate the challenges African villagers face in procuring clean water and to raise more money for additional wells.

Purchase Book

For each Water Works book sold, Wellspring for the World will donate $8.33 to World Vision to provide clean and safe water to families in Zambia. 

Sawyer hopes that the story in her book inspires you to volunteer or support World Vision and Wellspring for the World to bring clean, safe water to more people in parts of our world who lack that basic necessity.

Chitenge Bags for Water

After learning about children and families in the poverty stricken villages of Zambia, in south-central Africa, Sawyer wanted to help them drill clean water. Sawyer and her volunteer teammates raised more than $26,000 to develop wells in south-central Africa. This equates to 10 wells and 3,000 lives.
