Awaken helps people with sexual brokenness and addiction to find freedom, recovery, and hope. People who struggle want answers. “Why do I keep doing this?” “How can I stop?” “What’s wrong with me that I can’t change” They wrestle with serious beliefs and doubts about themselves. “No one is as bad as I am.” “I am a selfish, awful person”.

Safe Water Africa
Safe Water Africa is a 501(c)3, non-profit founded in 2011 with the mission and purpose to empower the local Christian church in Tanzania, Africa by providing safe, clean purified water on church propery to rural pastors, churches and their communities in Tanzania.
Safe water can transform an entire community from waterborne sickness and disease to one of focusing on faith, improving health, education, and opportunity-especially for women and children. It changes everything!
Our safe water ministry provides two significant blessings to the pastors, churches and communities in Tanzania. Access to safe clean drinking water is one of the biggest humanitarian problems in the world so by providing safe water, we (1) address the tremendous humanitarian need and (2) provide the local pastors with an outreach tool to invite the community to the church to share the clean water and hear the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We like to call it "living water". Safe Water Africa is based in Birmingham, AL.
