The Lifewater Project - 2018
In the Summer of 2018 TCC is partnering with Lifewater to adopt a village in Kakumiro, Uganda. On this page you will find an overview of what we are trying to do and how you can help.
How can I help?
For many of us we are excited to participate in a great cause but do not exactly know how to help. Here are some ideas:
30-Day Water Challenge
- Make a choice to only drink water for the next 30 days then estimate all the funds you would have spent on coffee, soft drinks, etc and donate that amount.
- Does 30 days seem intimidating? Start with 7, 10 or even 14!
Ask the Big Ask
- Many companies and organizations are interested in participating and contributing to meaningful projects like this. Why not ask if your workplace would be willing to participate?
SAVE CHANGE IN A WATER BOTTLE
- Finish the water in a standard plastic bottle. Cut a slot in the top and collect change to help change the life of a village in Kakumiro, Uganda.
- This is a great way to spur on the conversation with your kids!
- Want a glimpse into the lives of what those around the world do for water? Plan to participate in our Water Walk on July 28.
- Here we will have times available from 12:00 PM - 3:00 PM and water containers common to third world villages filled to carry. See how far you can make it around the lap at Duke and let this help you understand what people all around the world endure.
- Consider using this as an opportunity to ask friends and family to support this cause. This can be something as simple as the following message:
Over 800 million people around the world do not have access to clean drinking water. We at Troy Christian Church are taking steps to change the future to one community in Uganda. Will you support me as I try to change the future for a community?
- Ideas are plentiful. Just take a look at Lifewater's Website to see some other ideas!
