Trek for Water
The “Trek for Water”
Water, one of the most powerful living elements on the planet “the great blue rock” covering nearly 2/3 of the earth’s surface, ironically also consuming 2/3 of our bodies.
Water, our amazing life source and without it, our creation does not exist. When we think of its characteristics a few words might come to mind, life, transformative, free flowing, powerful, purity….. and UNITY
We all need it, can’t live without it, and yet 784M of OUR fellow members of mankind do NOT have access to it. Did you know the average walk for water is 3.9 miles in the under developed world? Did you know nearly 80% of those water fetchers are women and children, the average jerrycan weighing 40lbs. The Statistics are astonishing, every day 800 children under the age of 5 die from diarrhea related deaths due to contaminated water, these are preventable causes.
Though the problems are vast, the solutions are plentiful and accessible. The solutions resting beneath our feet, the reach woven into our hearts, WE, humanity, hold the keys, and no one else is coming. We are the ONLY solution.
Trek for Change, has discovered a sustainable solution, we are calling this the “Miracle H20 Device. It is a solar thermal water purification container. This device allows people to drawl 10 liters of water from a well, heated by the energy from the natural sunlight, purifying clean water to SAFE/CLEAN drinking water within 4-5 hours.
For those of you who have been following the story, 4 weeks ago we had the privilege to blow a well in the community of Kanada, Africa where we are building our Green School. This well has become an anchor of new life in this community of 400 families.
Over the course of the next 21 days, we have made a commitment to provide each of these families with the “Miracle H20 Device” and we need your help. For $65 you can sponsor/donate one of these containers which will also include 10 deworming tablets. This container is a game changer, it provides a platform to educate, an opportunity for us all to become more mindful of the needs around us, and most importantly shouts UNITY and LIFE.
Our goal is to deliver 400 of these devices to the community of Kanada by May 1st. The heart of our Trek focused on empowerment and transformation.
