Today is GivingTuesday, considered to be the opening day of the giving season, just as we were reminded of the Black Friday frenzy this weekend. This is a time to give back and why not to your charity of choice of our professional associations across Canada since 1995, Water for People Canada. (Click hereto connect)
Since its founding in 1995, Water For People–Canada has sponsored more than 50 projects benefiting the most marginalized people, particularly women and children in Bolivia, Honduras, Guatemala, Malawi and Vietnam.
Water For People–Canada takes pride in teaching people how to address their own water issues. All project work is designed to encourage capacity-building and long-term sustainability by the communities themselves.
What a great idea! Thank you for reminding us, especially in this time when all leaders of the world are deciding on the fate of our world in Paris at COP21. I followed through with your suggestion and donated to Water for People Canada.
I know the great work that Water for People is doing in the field, supported by water professionals like us who devote some of their free time to this great cause of supporting local communities provide themselves with clean, local water supplies and sanitation. The great majority of Canadians are fortunate to benefit from our access to abundant and clean water and sanitation. If we can all provide a drop of support to those in need, we can make a real difference in this World.
