Throughout July, H2O for Life is recognizing schools that have participated in a service-learning and fundraising project for 10 years or more.
Last week we highlighted Highview Middle School. Today, we would like to shine light on our friends at Centennial Middle School in Lino Lakes, MN! As one of the original H2O for Life Schools, the students at Centennial have been participating in our program for 13 years!
Since 2007, Centennial Middle School has raised just under $60,000 for its partner schools around the world. The students at Centennial have made a point not just to learn about global water issues, but also about how to conserve and care for water in their own back yard. One of the key components of our programming is realizing that issues surrounding water and sanitation impact other parts of our lives. Not having access to clean water negatively affects public health, literacy rates, local economies, and much more. The students at Centennial realize that being a good global citizen means caring about preserving the water resources here as well as providing clean water to their partner schools so everyone can have the opportunity to live a happy and healthy life.
They have been making a big impact in the lives of others!
Since 2007, Centennial Middle School has supported:
- 22 different WASH projects
- In 8 different countries around the world
- On 3 different continents
- Implemented by 11 of our NGO partners
Thank you, Centennial Middle School, for 13 years of hard work and for always striving to be engaged global citizens. Your dedication to helping students around the world have access to clean water, sanitation, and hygiene resources in inspiring!
