Hello I am in 7th grade and my social studies class is working working on a RITA project. RITA stands for, Research, Inform, Take Action. My project is to help people in Africa get clean water. I am partnering with H2O For Life to help bring clean water to schools in Africa. The school I will be donating to is Boro Primary School Grades 3-5. This school in Ethiopia does not have a safe water source for the students to drink from. Your donation will go to helping the school install a block of latrines (5 doors) that are custom engineered to be accessible to students with disabilities. A hand dug well will also be installed which will provide a safe water source.
Did you know that lack of safe water and toilets is a big reason why 3 out of 4 girls won't finish primary school in Africa? In some parts in Africa the average person has to walk 3 miles in order to get water that sometimes isn’t even clean.
For my project I will be simulating the fact that lots of kids have to walk miles in order to get clean water. I will be taking orders for individual gallons of water within my neighborhood. If you order a gallon of water I will walk to Market Basket and then walk the gallon of water off at your house. I just ask that you make a donation to Boro Primary School to help bring clean water to their school. Thank you for your time and I hope my neighbors will join with me for this great cause.
