As I prepared to become bat mitzvah, I studied a portion of the Torah in which the Israelites cross out of Egypt and Miriam leads them in song at the Sea of Reeds. I also studied another text called a haftarah that is read on the same day as the Torah portion. It is the story of Devora and Yael, two more strong women characters. Right away I noticed two things in common, the power of women and the power of water. I have been thinking a lot about how I can empower girls and women around the world. This organization seemed like a perfect fit!
Did you know nearly 1 billion people don't have safe water to drink?
Together, we can change that. Let's fund a new source of drinking water for those who suffer needlessly without it!
Our gifts will be used to construct or rehabilitate a water project, like a well or sand dam, in Africa. We'll see pictures, GPS coordinates, and updates as they come in from the actual water project we fund so we can celebrate the results along with the community we help.
