A Success Story from a Change for Global Change Grant



Water Source of Life – Ntotwe, Mozambique

“On 5/13/2016, feast day of the Patron Saint, the blessing and inauguration of the water tank took place with all the village representatives of the different religions. It was a day of celebration because the cistern was already full of pure water. The water of the tank will benefit 130 families. Women of the third age will benefit most, because they will not have to leave the village to stand and wait for water, facing dangers, because the water is now inside the village. Children and adolescents do not need to walk long distances with heavy buckets, avoiding tardiness at school. The most important thing is that the water is pure, without risks to health.”


An integral ecology includes taking time to recover a serene harmony with creation, reflecting on our lifestyle and our ideals, and contemplating the Creator who lives among us and surrounds us. 
–Pope Francis, Laudato Si, #225
