Service

Service

As one of the three tenets, service is a fundamental element of CKI. Collectively, CKI members perform more than one million house of service on their campuses and in their communities annually. Without service, CKI would be just another campus activity. Through service, college students are making the world a better place. Every year CKI pursues a different mission under the title of the District Service Project.

Some Ways We Serve:

Saving Lives: The Six Cents Initiative 

In order to stay healthy, it is important to drink 1.5 to 2 liters of clean water every day. But more than 2.6 billion people lack even the most basic sanitation facilities and safe drinking water sources. At a cost of only 6 cents, a life saving mixture of sugar and salt called oral rehydration salts (ORS) is the most effective and cheapest way to combat dehydration. CKI is working with UNICEF to provide these rehydration salts to those in need.

CKI’s Six Cents Initiative with UNICEF is designed to help children get the rehydrating salts they need to survive dehydration spells. But that’s not all. With the money raised, UNICEF also is working to provide long-term solutions for the problem, which includes providing clean water resources through the installation of filtration and sanitation systems. Water filters installed in schools and communal areas can benefit entire communities. Ultimately , the goal is to educate individuals on safe water and hygiene practices, and to provide supplies to produce safe water supplies for communities.
