Mains’l Mission Team members are made up of employees who have committed to sharing their gifts, skills and talents with others through our work in Africa. For the past nine years, the Mission Team has been working, playing and building relationships with those we meet while in Zimbabwe. Collaborating with our on-the ground partner, Mother Africa Trust, our work has included supporting an orphanage, an old age home, building a new school, numerous projects in rural villages, and conservation efforts. 2020 marks the 10th anniversary of Mains’l mission trips. Unfortunately, the scheduled May trip was postponed due to COVID 19. But that’s not stopping us! There is a critical need in Zimbabwe right now, and we are continuing our mission efforts from a distance. And we need your help! No matter where we are, we embody the Mains’l Mission, Vision and Core Values, both in our communities and throughout the world. Vision: A world where people live with meaning and purpose. Mission: Offering innovative supports to people, responding to their hopes and dreams. Core Values: We believe in honesty and truthfulness; We believe in serving others. We believe all people make meaningful contributions, and every person is valuable. We believe in collaboration and partnerships. We believe in excellence.
Did you know that girls around the world do not get the education we take for granted because of a lack of both water and sanitation in their villages? Olivia Hawkins and Clare Sullivan are working with H2O for Life to make water and sanitation sustainable for the Erasmus Creche School in South Africa. Throughout the month of June, they're working towards raising funds to make this a reality.
The third graders at Abbotts Creek Elementary are learning about water as part of our ELA curriculum. Students are learning about water issues such as; pollution, access, and demands on water. Students will participate in this project as a way to spread awareness.
This is the Abington Junior High School Destination Imagination team and we have chosen to help the Kyshero Secondary & Vocational School raise funds to install a tap for a piped spring-fed gravity water system to provide sufficient water all year for drinking, cooking and hand washing at this school and the local community. As a team, we have chosen to do a service project for the Destination Imagination competition with the Project Outreach Challenge. By selecting H2O as our community partner for this project, the need for water and their purpose will be spread globally.
Our club is dedicated to providing clean water to the world population one step at a time. We believe in a world where access to clean water is a possibility for everyone, and we hope to achieve that through annual fundraisers. We hope to make clean water a reality for everyone.
Academie Da Vinci Charter School for the Arts and Technology is a Kindergarten through 8th grade school located in Dunedin, Florida. We are the first charter school to be established in Pinellas County. Our school is part of the Pinellas County Schools and follows the Pinellas County Schools curriculum. We enhance that curriculum with a curriculum program called STEAM – science, technology, engineering, arts and math. STEAM curriculum offers students the opportunity to learn new skills and information in multiple ways and to demonstrate their learning through projects and presentations.
The Academy of the Sacred Heart is an all-girls, Toddler-12th grade school in New Orleans, Louisiana. Embedded in the school's mission is the importance of social justice in our global community. It is one of the five Goals to which our community adheres to in our daily lives. Combining this act of social awareness with another of our Goals, "Respect for Intellectual Values," this fundraising project is an ongoing, social entrepreneurship project for the 2nd Preparatory. The vision is to provide learning activities which empower students to effectively change the world. Students learn how to ideate, create, develop, and market goods and events that have the potential to benefit society, e. g. H2O for Life schools
We are a Interact club sponsored by Rotary of Yakima that focuses on solving world issues and local issues. We are interested in bringing awareness to our own society about the need for water not just locally but to the world as we understand it contributes to pandemics and other global concerns. We need our world to be a better place and afford opportunities to girls in education, most girls are unable to attend school in secondary level.
Environmental education is a core value at AFSA High School. We strive to connect students to both their environment and their community. Being an H2O for Life school is one of the ways we make meaningful learning opportunities available to students and work toward our school's mission. Our school's NHS Chapter is leading our fundraising and awareness efforts. Last year we helped build a well in Uganda. This year we hope to get more of the school involved in this important project through monthly hat days, selling H2O for life t-shirts, and other fun events. We are excited to make a difference!
