On March 22, 2012 ONE members and Zack McDowell from waterthirst.org, met up at Congresswoman Eddie Bernice Johnson’s office in Dallas, TX for World Water Day, to hold discussions on the water and poverty issue.
It opened with Kyle Talkington discussing ONE’s objectives. A presentation of the ONE’s foundation and work through the years. Zack McDowell from waterthirst.org then played a short documentary of the work that was currently underway in Kenya, Africa. He mentioned a girl he met named Marry, while on his trip there, captured at the end of the clip.
It was then that Zack McDowell was able to give a more descriptive objective of the irrigation project. The idea is to make it easier, to take the man hours off of the people of Africa, and produce access to easier water resources. The water comes from a spring, through limestone off the mountains, in which the water is free from contamination.
It was a privilege to be able to attend the meeting. The issues for the ONE Campaign, to reach out to more members. The ONE Campaign has an alliance in these issues with waterthirst.org, to unite a global cause, and to bring awareness.
