PLEASE JOIN US IN THIS MOST SATISFYING AND ENDURING WORK FOR OUR GLOBAL FAMILY
Clean Water for Our Family
Of course, we know the old adage, Charity Begins at Home. And it does. But “home” today is our globe, our earth. Although geographical distances between us may be great, my choices and actions, and yours, affect every human family member on earth – even if they live a continent away.
Climate Change: Scientists have published findings that are irrefutable. In Nicaragua and Zambia, the effects of climate change on rain cycles, food supply and water collection are life-threatening. These effects are due to our own voracious economy and lifestyle which in return makes each of us responsible for mitigating these effects where we can. When we bring clean water to rural villages, it is the most effective climate change mitigation. It has life-saving impact on a person's quality of life, their health and their ability to grow food.
Providing clean water is the most effective method to alleviate poverty which is projected to grow even more extreme due to climate change. International PEACE Projects invites you to join us as we do our part to support the water needs of our human family and the climate change challenges they face every day.
Mobilizing Citizens: International PEACE Projects respond to the needs of community stakeholders. They have come together to initiate, design, implement and maintain clean water and clean water education projects. We support communities by providing funding and building leadership skills among stakeholders so that they are effective advocates for their own communities.
Advocacy: In subsistence economies, people meet their basic needs through "self-provisioning". Their time and labor are devoted to obtaining water, firewood and tending crops. Imagine the stress of drought, illness of a family member or crop loss - each can be catastrophic! Your funds serve the needs of people who cannot depend on government assistance when things go wrong. We draw policymakers' attention to this injustice.
Fundraising: International PEACE Projects implements life-changing projects thanks to your financial contributions. Help us make a difference in the quality of life of our human family, and protect environmental quality with each project we do. We work together with our local partners to improve health and the environment, thanks to your generosity.
Philanthropy: There are several ways to contribute. 1) Make a contribution for a specific project. 2) Make an undesignated contribution that we will use, as needed, to meet our annual goals. 3) Let us know that you intend to make an annual contribution to help us with project planning. 4) Leave a Legacy contribution as part of your estate planning that will support International PEACE Projects in perpetuity.
However you decide to contribute, International PEACE Projects will put your philanthropy to work. Your contribution, large or small, has a big impact on the lives of our human family.
