Technology in Developing Countries

We often get the question of why a sponsored child's family has a cell phone, TV or access to Facebook.

What we see as technological "luxuries" can be viewed very differently in the developing world.

Water of Life

In Haiti, cholera from unclean water almost took 13-year-old Philomene's life. Now clean water from one of our Water of Life filtration systems is saving it.

There are no chemicals, moving parts, training or electricity needed to use these clean water filters. Each filter can produce at least 1 million gallons of water - enough for a lifetime's supply for 60 people.

#WaterIs  Equality: 325 million people in Sub-Saharan #Africa don't have access to clean water.

World Water Day is this Sunday, March 22nd!

We want to celebrate with communities like this one in Madhya Pradesh who has taken the lack of access to clean sustainable water into their own hands and mobilized their community into action.

The Power of Pity

The Drop Box movie, showing this week, is an interesting study in how feelings of pity can be used to further God's kingdom. Jesus had pity, or compassion, on people and it compelled him to act.

The next time you feel pity for another person, be open to God. Explore the situation and see how He might use you to further His kingdom.

Pity is a feeling many of us have when we come face-to-face with the misfortunes of others -- with those whom we perceive to have less than us. We feel pity when we see things we don’t understand. ...

We're working to bring water closer to home. In 2014, we provided safe water through 100 new wells, 95 large water-storage tanks, and 26 large-scale water purification systems to the communities in which we work.

it seems like a great organization but I am suspicious of it. my mom has been donating for years and always writing letters. the letters don't add up ever and her questions never get answered. I wonder if there even is a girl sometimes.
