ABOUT JUST WATER
Almost a billion people in our world are living without access to clean water. As a result, the leading cause of death worldwide is illness due to waterborne disease, lack of sanitation, and poor hygiene practices. In fact, every 15 seconds, a child dies due to water-related causes. What’s more, lack of clean water affects children’s education and families’ well-being because children and women walk hours each day to gather water instead of going to school or spending time on other productive activities.
The JUST WATER initiative is education, a challenge, an event, and a celebration of hope in the midst of a global water crisis. It’s an opportunity to engage the injustice, learn how it affects people’s lives, and actively contribute to changing the stories of kids and families who live without access to safe water.
WILL YOU JOIN THE MOVEMENT?
You can join the JUST WATER initiative by signing up for a JUST WATER WEEKEND or taking the JUST WATER CHALLENGE.

WHAT IS A JUST WATER WEEKEND?
JUST WATER WEEKEND is a turn-key weekend event focused on learning about God’s heart for justice and what we can do about the global water crisis.
During your JUST WATER WEEKEND, you’ll be encouraged to help “right” the water situation through education, participation, and fundraising. Participants can also take the JUST WATER CHALLENGE and accept the call to become advocates and fundraisers while drinking only water for a time period of your choice (7 days, 40 days, or 365 days).

WHAT IS THE JUST WATER CHALLENGE?
The JUST WATER CHALLENGE is a campaign challenge to choose to drink only water for a period of time as a way to share the story of the global water crisis and to fundraise by telling your story throughout the challenge. You can take this challenge with a group of people or on your own. Some choose to give the the money they would have spent on other drinks to support WASH (water, sanitation, and hygiene) projects. Help break the cycle of poverty by telling your story, telling someone else’s story, and fundraising for the need. Choose a 7-day, 40-day, or 365-day campaign.
Through the JUST WATER CHALLENGE, we drink the clean water we have to help those who do not yet have access to safe drinking water.
Start your JUST WATER CHALLENGE today! Invite friends and family members to give to the NCM Global Water Fund and help fight the global water crisis.
