Clean water is vital for life. For everyone everywhere. Finding water is a daily challenge for young girls, moms and sons in sub Sahara Africa. Providing a reliable and safe water source will unlock potential by returning time for study, work, and imagination. We have partnered for the last eight years with The Water Project to help end the water crisis and restore hope. The Water Project are disciples of Jesus who serve everyone everywhere with providing a "cup of cool water".
This year we set the ambitious goal of raising enough funds to build two community water points. The generosity of the Mirabeau Chapel community provided over $11,000 in order to do this!! Here are the projects and the links to continually follow them.
2019 Goal is a Community Water Point ($5,500)
Kenya: Protected Spring Project
The project utilizes and grows local leadership to build the projected spring, upgrade sanitation, educate on hygiene and sanitation, and monitors the outcome.
Uganda: Well and Hand Pump
The project utilizes and grows local leadership to drill a well and install a hand pump. They will drill the well, install the pump, educate on hygiene and sanitation, and monitor the outcome. If all goes as planned, the community is left with a safe, closed water source providing around 5 gallons of water a minute through a hand-pump.
