Connecticut Teacher is Committed to Teaching Global Citizenship

Posted by Mitchell LeGrand on August 19, 2020

All good things must come to an end, and this is our last week of the summer where we celebrate schools that have participated for ten years or more. So last, but not least…we would like to honor the latest inductee into the H2O for Life 10 Year+ Ring of Honor: Global Communications Academy in Hartford, CT!

Sue Rubb and her students at Global Communications Academy have raised over $8,000 for partner schools in 10 different countries. Since 2010, they have learned about helping others and the importance of clean water through H2O for Life’s service-learning project. Global Communications Academy is preparing its students to become first class global citizens. They offer a rigorous academic curriculum with three embedded themes: global issues, global systems, and global cultures. By working with H2O for Life, they are diving deep into those themes and taking action on what they have learned about real-world global issues!

Global Communications Academy has made a big global impact by supporting:

  • 12 different WASH projects
  • In 10 different countries around the world
  • Implemented by 9 of our NGO partners


Thank you, Global Communications Academy, for 10 years of educating the next generation of global citizens and for your commitment to fighting the global water crisis! Your dedication to helping students around the world gain access to clean water, sanitation, and hygiene resources is inspiring.
