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.
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. With the incredible leadership of Ms. Rodgers, we hope to make clean water a reality for everyone.
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 club 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 a H2O for Life school is our way of making meaningful learning opportunities available to students and working toward our school's mission. Our school's NHS Chapter is leading our fundraising and awareness efforts. Last year we helped build a well at the Abela School in Uganda. This year we hope to get more of the school involved in this important project through monthly hat days, a water walk, and family movie nights.
Aid for Africa is a charity alliance of U.S.-based nonprofits and their African partners working to help children, families, and communities throughout Sub-Saharan Africa. Aid for Africa members are all dedicated to solving the complex, inter-related challenges facing Africa. Our members realize that, as effective as they each are on their own, they can be even more powerful when they approach Africa’s issues as a group. Together our members, with their partners on the ground in Africa, touch almost every aspect of the African community. Whether they are collecting and distributing books to school children, introducing medical strategies to combat the spread of HIV/AIDS, or identifying and supporting women’s micro-enterprise projects, Aid for Africa’s members have one thing in common—a passionate desire to help the people of Africa solve critical problems and build a better future for their children and communities. Organizations wishing to become part of the Aid for Africa partnership must meet stringent tests of fiscal accountability, governance and programmatic impact.
Portland Oregon is water rich. The Community Service Club at Alameda wants to create greater awareness that this basic resource we take for granted - clean water flows from our taps and water fountains - is scarce in many parts of Africa and elsewhere. As the climate changes, drought and water scarcity will become of greater concern around the globe.
Albert Einstein Academies is an Elementary and Middle School that is committed to offering a global education through our International Baccalaureate Primary and Middle Years Programmes. We teach our students to be caring and responsible global citizens who continuously strive to take action to make our world a better place. This will be our 3rd Annual school-wide Walk for Water that coincides with World Water Day on March 22nd and we would like the money we raise to go to assisting the Cherrai School in India provide their villages with toilets as well as promoting the importance of clean water on health through education. This wil be our second year funding for H2O for life
We are so fortunate to have clean water that is easily accessible to us. We take this necessity for granted too often. It is my hope that, through partnering with Lutangilo School in Tanzania, that we all will learn empathy for others and to be thankful for a resource we all need to live.
Our students read the book A Long Walk to Water. We want to participate as a culminating service learning project. When the students were done reading the book they realized that they had to take action and make a difference.
