If your plan is for ten years plant trees.

If your plan is for one hundred years educate children. ”

Rainwater Harvesting with Journey4YOUth

Give the Gift of Clean Water
Gift an older widow with a 3000 liter rain water tank and gutters.
This tank will be filled after just two rains and provide clean and disease free drinking water to the family. Clean Water that doesn’t require hours of collecting and carrying. The total cost to purchase a 3000 L tank and have it installed is $500. This doesn't seem like much when we consider the impact it will have on a families life.  Yet this is a lot for one person to give, but spread out over a few people that can give a little, a huge impact can be made. Perhaps you will consider asking your friends/family/coworkers to give the gift of water as well and help you install a rain water system for a widow in Kenya.

The Essential Way

With our constant commitment towards education and practice of The Essential Way, we not only physically help, but also Spiritually by installing the daily use of the Seven Essential Elements.

      With the new breath of each day, try with all that is to put into practice these important Essential Elements; Calmness, Compassion, Kindness, Forgiveness, Gratitude, Love and Mindfulness. Think about each of these words and what they mean. Receive the all of what is being said and feel the power and compassion they exude. If we hear and feel them enough, maybe the way of the 7 Essential Elements will thrive and spread towards complete freedom and peace for all.
