Sisters4Water - The Stories We Tell

Sisters4Water, Ella and Mabel, were the keynote speakers at H2O for Life’s annual Water Ball on Saturday in beautiful Minneapolis, Minnesota. This year’s theme was “The Stories We Tell.” The girls designed a dynamite slide show and gave a keynote speech celebrating their nine years of water activism, philanthropy, and potholder weaving. They received a rousing standing ovation from the 400 attendees and sold out of the seventy potholders that they made for the event.

It was an unforgettable night. The entire H2O for Life team is incredibly inspiring. The girls can’t stop talking about their next goal: traveling to Nicaragua or Kenya to help in the construction of the water projects they fund.

We thank you for being an essential part of their story and for championing their global citizenship.

Love and gratitude,
Kate & Ciaran

EORM Padre Gregorio Schaffer (Phase 2)

Guatemala 440 beneficiaries

The Aldea Agua Escondida community is located on Lake Atitlan in the Western Highland region of Guatemala. In this area 81% of people live in poverty and 40% live in extreme poverty, some of the highest rates in the country. Schools in this rural region are underfunded and often forgotten, and EORM Padre Gregorio Schaffer is no exception. It is located on the less touristy side of the lake, and therefore has not attracted the attention of many donors to improve the school infrastructure. In the past, the community and parents have come together to make small repairs.
