Water is something we rely on every day – almost every hour of every day. But for 663 million people who don’t have access to clean drinking water, water becomes the key to life. Access to clean water can help children and families become smarter, stronger, safer, more successful, more productive and help them live longer. You can provide a brighter future for a child and community simply by providing them the water they need.
The Living Water Bible Study is a six week devotional for individual or group reflection on the importance of water.

Stronger: when fields can be irrigated crop yields and livestock production is increased.
More Secure: in many countries women walk long distances to collect water, putting their personal safety at risk.
More Successful: self-employed women can spend more time building their businesses than spending time collecting water.
More Productive: 80% of wells built by World Vision remain in use after two decades, helping a community be high-functioning.
Helps you Live Longer: clean water helps medical practices in a community improve, strengthening basic services such as child delivery and infection prevention. Eg. Diarrhea
