Together we change the world

Since Lent Event began, we’ve raised over $3 million together.  Those funds have helped our partners provide clean water and sanitation, build education programs that pull people out of poverty, train Christian leaders for the growing global church and create peace building programs.

And we’ve seen big changes as a result!

In 2018 more change is on the horizon. You’ll be learning about and supporting equality for women and girls, beating poverty through education and helping communities save lives by preparing to prevent natural disasters from becoming tragedies.

Play your part through prayer, by giving up something from daily life, and by donating to projects that change lives.

Get involved here.
