When Tania wants to go to the city to join an advocacy march for clean water, her mum isn't convinced. Is Tania's advocacy driven by her understanding of the issue, or by her desire to impress her teacher?
But when Tania is faced with an overflowing toilet, and the George family are suddenly without clean water Tania's motivation to join the march is set straight once and for all.
Tania Abbey is just a regular girl from a regular Australian town - with one or two crazy ideas. She's also a peace-activist, environmental campaigner and follower of Jesus. Her latest idea? It's to be the only girl in her school to run a stall at the Water for the World march! Her parents certainly think it's crazy but Tania sets out to prove to them wrong. Water may be just an everyday thing to Tania and her friends but they soon realise how important it really is, especially to people like Shanti, an Indian girl they know. However, it's when Tania has a rather embarrassing toilet disaster that she realises just how essential water is! It's something that she just can't do without every day. Tania's plan for the march is coming along at full-speed - but then she begins to realise that there is something else that she needs every day. Do people see Jesus in her life as she goes about doing her day-to-day stuff? Come the day of the March, there are hundreds of people all thinking about the same issue, Water for the World. For most of us it's an everyday thing to turn on the tap; is it an everyday thing for Jesus to pour out of your life, though?
