Walk4Water Volunteer Meeting
The Walk4Water is educational, fun and inspirational for all ages. The 10th Annual Walk4Water will take place in Bidwell Park on April 14, 2018. Participants begin their 2K or 5K walk at the One Mile Dam Recreation Area with an empty bucket in hand. As they go, walkers visit educational stations about the tremendous need for safe water on a global scale and about water conservation in their home communities. Participants fill their empty buckets from the creek at the mid-way point and carry it back to the One Mile Recreation Area, simulating the long walks made daily by women and children of developing countries where clean water boreholes (hand pumped wells) do not yet exist. To make the Walk4Water successful, approximately 100 community volunteers from schools, churches and other service groups help to organize the event.

New Life Homes - Swaziland
Peter and Mary Jean Kopp began New Life Homes in 2001 to address the growing need to care for the most vulnerable children, orphaned or abandoned and without alternatives for care as a result of the HIV/AIDS crisis. A 195-acre farm was acquired in 2003. To date, four homes have been built and are fully operational. Each home provides for 8 to 10 children. Dedicated Swazi parents give themselves to love and parent these children unconditionally. Each family operates as independently as possible, functioning as any other family in their culture. Seeking to achieve self-reliance, both parents and children participate through growing their own food and generating income. Free-range eggs, broiler chickens, pigs, beef, vegetables and vegetable seedling are profitably marketed. Website
