Guatemala Mission Partnership Holds Virtual Fundraiser
On Saturday, Nov. 7, the Guatemala Mission Partnership (GMP) held its first ever virtual fundraiser by creating a fundraising video that premiered on YouTube.
The fundraising team did a lot of advanced planning to make this happen: researching best practices, recording and editing the video, and updating their website and Facebook page. They spread the word several ways: an online event and email marketing campaign through their website, their new YouTube Channel, and their Facebook page.
Partner with Living Waters for the World
CREATE A GLOBAL MISSION HAVING LONG-TERM IMPACT
How it Works
Living Waters for the World comes alongside volunteer water teams throughout every phase of their water partnerships.
Train at least 3 volunteers at Clean Water U where you will learn LWW's model and form the foundation of your water mission team.
In consultation with the LWW network team for the region, establish a covenant partnership with an international community in need of clean water.
Train community partners to install and sustain a water purification system and health education program.
Whether you are part of an established mission program or you are brand new to it all
Living Waters for the World can help you build
a global water mission with the potential for long-term impact.
Train Your Team
LWW teams have formed within churches and consortium of churches, Sunday School classes, church governing bodies, civic organizations, workplaces and many other communities and organizations in which mission-oriented people take part.
The first step to forming a mission partnership with Living Waters for the World is to send at least three people to Clean Water U for training.
Clean Water U is a five day, hands-on training program held in Oxford, Mississippi.
Empower International Partners
After training at Clean Water U, water teams covenant with an international partner community for a minimum three-year period. During this time partners work together to help the community achieve its goal of changing lives through clean water.
Water teams may choose to partner with a new community or an existing site located within one of Living Waters for the World's international networks. Partners work together to install, operate and/or sustain a water purification system and health education program.
Network teams come alongside partners throughout the planning and implementation phases of their water projects and provide support in the form of site assessments, project guidance, and installation assistance.
The installation of a new water purification system and health education program is just the beginning. Achieving self-sustainability takes time and ongoing support from water teams and Living Waters for the World networks.
That's why follow-up visits are built in to the covenant agreement. This gives you the chance to reconnect with your partners and work through questions, difficulties, and opportunities that arise once the system is in operation. Living Waters for the World's international networks continue to support partners throughout the sustainability phase.
