The Journey Begins!

In 2010, David and I took a year off to volunteer in Haiti and Cambodia with an organization called Youth With A Mission. As part of our training, we learned how to purify water and build rain tanks using local resources. The idea was simple: to give individuals in developing countries a "hand-up" rather than a "hand-out" so that they can learn how to purify water and in turn, train others to do the same.

And it worked! A ripple effect started to take place in the areas we visited. Excited about the opportunity to train and equip more students, a few of our friends formed a non-profit called Justice Water.

So to kick things off, David and I will be committing the next two years volunteering with Justice Water. We believe that this “Ripple effect” will spread and suckerpunch the ugly face of injustice – that 800 million people in the world don’t have access to safe drinking water.

Join us in our journey! We will not only have exciting updates on our volunteer work with Justice Water, but also practical tips on urban beekeeping, the joy of parenting, moving to a foreign country and how to live the purpose-driven life you dream about, now.

Did you know that it takes 2 million flowers to make one pound of honey? Did you know that babies intuitively don't want to soil themselves? Or that with some minor adjustments, you could, with your family travel for a whole year without pay?

These are just a few of the facts we've learnt along the way. Who would have thought that this two urban yuppies would be keeping bees and travelling with a baby doing pro bono work. Click on the following project segments to find out in detail what I'm talking about.
