Lent Appeal: Jars of Change

Urusa, 12, studying in class in Sindh, Pakistan, January 2017 WaterAid/Sibtain Haider

This Lent your congregation can help children across the world return to school and realise their full potential.

At this time of year, many Christians are considering what to give up for Lent. But imagine having to give up school, and your hopes for the future.

This is the reality for many children around the world who don’t have clean water or toilets at school. But with the help of churches across the UK, it could soon change. By giving something up this Lent, your congregation can help make sure that Urusa (pictured above) and children like her don’t have to give up on the life they dream of.

Fill out the form below to receive your free Jars of Change pack. Whilst you're waiting for your pack to arrive, download our additional resources and film to kick start the appeal and inspire your congregation.

The resource pack you receive in the post will include:

  • An A3 poster

  • Lent-themed Sunday School activities
  • A donation form to make paying in your collection easy
  • Jar sleeves to inspire those taking part
