The project originated with European and African women during the annual meeting of the European Women of Faith Network in May 2011, where they decided to focus on water, bridging simultaneously a number of Millennium Development Goals. In September 2011, the Belgian Council of Religious Leaders (BCRL) supported by the Belgian Women of Faith Network (BWFN) adopted the topic of Water in the framework of  The World Interfaith Harmony Week, and it was proposed to young people from 5-18 years old in all state schools in Belgium. Their messages, expressed in different art forms, were presented in the Belgian Federal Parliament on the 21 of September (in the context of World Peace Day). The Water Campaign was launched at the European Commission in the framework of the Convention on the Rights of the Child, on the 20th  of November 2012 in the presence of the Director of UNICEF-Europe, leading religious and scientific authorities, RfP/Europe in partnership with the Global network of Religions for Children supported by schoolchildren, different bodies within RfP-Europe    as well as faith-based youth NGOs.
