“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”
Do you want to learn more about biblical justice?
When you see others in pain, do you want to do something about it?
Do you suspect that your life was meant to change lives?
Do you have a group you want to involve in living justice? Are you looking for something different? Are you wanting a more diverse guide?
If the answer is yes to any of these questions, then you’re in the right place to learn.
The Justice Movement’s first globally curated curriculum and event package will be centered on the theme of water in our world, the problems that we face, and our part in changing things.
MAKING A MOVE
The Justice Movement engages young people in living out God’s call to biblical justice and compassion as an outflow of a relationship with Jesus. The global movement emphasizes collective participation in the larger Story of God.
We know that together, youth can change our world. One move at a time.
The Justice Movement will focus on different justice-related issues along the way, and we’re starting with the basics — water, sanitation, and hygiene.
The global water crisis changes the story of children and families around the world, limiting their possibilities and threatening their health.
In the beginning when God created water, it was good.
Water brings life to creation and to humanity.
We can't live without water, yet 783 million people in the
world don't have access to safe, clean water to drink.
1 in 3 people in the world do not have access to improved sanitation.
Noelani is one of these people.
On an average day she walks 3.7 miles (5.95 km) to collect water.
The container of water she carries can weigh 40 pounds (18 kilograms).
Much of the water she collects is contaminated with
microorganisms that cause disease. Disease from unsafe
water and sanitation kills more people per year than war.
80% of all sickness and disease in the world is caused by contaminated water.
The worst culprits?
Diarrhea Typhoid Cholera Parasites
deaths each year
affected each year
cases each year
infected each year
Because of the time Noelani spends collecting water, she is unable to attend school.
Without an eduction, Noelani will be more likely to marry young, become a mother early, and
continue living in poverty. Education provides opportunities for a better future. With
education, Noelani could eventually help herself and her family break the cycle of poverty.
YOU can help her begin to interrupt the cycle.
YOU can help Noelani find a new path, clean water, education, and good health.
The funds you raise for JUST WATER will help the church to:
- Teach health and hygiene practices to prevent waterborne disease.
- Use simple innovation to sustainably provide safe water.
- Offer tools and training for hand pump repair.
- Create access to improved sanitation.
- Use water to build opportunities in microbusiness.
- Equip people for community development and disaster relief.
