We are 6th Graders at Friends Seminary. This year we read The Long Walk to Water and were inspired by Salva Dut's story. After participating in a water simulation this fall, we researched the United Nation's Sustainable Development Goal #6 which aims to address the struggles around the world to access clean, safe water. Through our H2O for Life walk, we hope to raise funds to help with the installation of a well to benefit a village in Salva Dut's home country of South Sudan. H2O for Life works with Salva Dut's organization, Water for South Sudan on projects where wells are built in villages with the plan that a school will form around that well in the future. South Sudan in its war-torn state is in desperate need of even the basic infrastructures to begin new communities.
We believe in the power of youth to make a difference in this world. We carefully selected our nonprofit partner, H2O for Life, because they work hard to impact the access to clean, safe water around the world and for their proven history in strong partnerships in the countries where they work. Thank you for considering supporting our fundraising effort. Scroll to the bottom of this page to read about the village project in South Sudan and to view photos.
