What does this project mean?
This project is about taking a stand for the millions of people around the world that don’t have access to clean drinking water or sufficient food. While this issue may seem very distant from us, it is not. The world’s problems are our problems. Our District Governor Amna Bajwa is an immigrant from Pakistan and has first-hand seen the horrors that come with not having life’s basic necessities. Amna has declared that she wants to do anything she can to end the global water crisis, and that is why she has declared this as this year’s Governor’s Project.
What can you do to help this project?
There are many organizations that help combat the global water crisis. Through the years, many Circle K’ers and Key Clubbers have partnered with these organizations to stand against the global water crisis. At this time we want to put emphasis on the Thirst Project which is an organization that the New York District of Circle K International has worked closely with throughout the years. The organization started in 2008 when a group of college students decided that enough was enough when it came to water insecurity. They were just like us, they wanted to make a difference so they got organized and gathered students throughout the entire nation to work toward one cause.
