Representatives from Trinity’s 10 Houses attended a Water with Blessings information session Aug. 31 in the library. This was the first stage in the school’s involvement in helping the ministry. House and Activities Director Mr. Adam Klein coordinates Trinity’s participation.

Some of the information disseminated at the meeting and then to students in all House advising groups via their representatives included the following:

  • Water with Blessings helps provide clean drinking water to people all over the world.
  • The organization supplies water filtration systems to mothers, who help provide clean drinking water for their communities.
  • Water with Blessings puts state-of-the-art water filters into the hands of mothers in marginal communities of developing nations and trains these Water Women to provide clean water, not just for their own families, but for others in the community as well.
  • Water with Blessings ministry currently provides support in more than 45 countries worldwide, including Haiti, South Sudan, India, Nepal, Bolivia, Liberia, Kenya, Nicaragua, and El Salvador.
  • With your help, the Trinity community can help make a real difference in the lives of people around the globe.
  • Service Project Goals include education, collection and outreach:
  • Students will learn more about Water with Blessings and the need to help provide safe drinking water for people living in marginal communities of developing nations.
  • Advising groups will collect donations to help sponsor Water Women.
  • Student volunteers will help construct Sawyer PointONE filters and learn how they can promote Water with Blessings in the Louisville community.
  • Collections will take place during advising from Monday, Sept. 13 through Thursday, Sept. 23.
  • The goal is to have each house collect enough money to sponsor six Water Women – one per advising group.
  • Water Women “pay it forward” by filtering water for three other families.
  • $75 per advising group will sponsor one Water Woman, which will provide clean water for four families.
  • $450 per house will sponsor six Water Women, which will provide clean water for 24 families.
