Kids-Empowering-Kids 2022 Mission Project

Kids-Empowering-Kids is Concordia Supply's annual VBS Mission program! This year, we're partnering with Empowering Lives International with the campaign "Water For Tanzania" to raise money for clean water in Tanzania, Africa.

Did you know? Nearly half of the kids on the planet woke up this morning to a world without water.

  • 2.1 billion – 2.1 billion people worldwide lack access to safe water at home. (WHO)
  • 3.7 Miles – Women and children in the developing world walk an average of 3.7 miles (6 km) per day to collect water. (USAID). After such an arduous chore, they may arrive late and tired at school. Being ‘needed at home’ is a major reason why children, especially girls from poor families, drop out of school. (UNICEF)
  • 570 million – Nearly 570 million children lack access to basic drinking water at school. (UNICEF)

You can reimagine a world where children everywhere have access to safe water.

How You Can Help

Our goal for VBS 2022 is to fully fund 10 new solar-powered wells! This will includes 5 new wells and 5 rehabilitated wells. Each well serves about 1000 people with a goal of giving 10,000 people clean water!
