Water: More Than Quenching Thirst (Situations of Substance series)

Water rights are a prominent justice issue across our globe today.

Following her mission experience in Guatemala, Jan Gregorcich, SSND, was convinced that bringing potable water to remote villages was an issue larger than what it appeared on the surface. From this awareness, Global Partners: Running Waters (GPRW) was founded. GPRW has a particular partnership with the Mayan communities of Quiche, Guatemala. GPRW continues to evolve, aiming to address water issues everywhere.
