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.
I worked on a couple of H2O for Life Water projects at my previous school and I found the experience to be very rewarding. I have always had an interest in water purification and conservation. I want to pursue a career in Environmental Engineering after high school so water projects will likely be an area that I will work in the future. I have tried to get a group of Water Warriors together at my current high school but I have not been successful in finding anyone interested in working with me on any H2O for Life Water projects. I saw this endeavor, and the need these young school children in Nicaragua have for clean, safe latrines and I decided to sponsor this school latrine project on my own.

The Andover eCademy Community Service group seeks to find various ways to help our community (at school, in Andover, in Kansas, and worldwide). We are excited about the opportunity to walk to help raise money to help those in need of clean water.
Our students have been studying the conservation and concerns of water in our region. The visited our local water plant and spoke with our city planner. After considering the concerns regarding water locally, nationally, and internationally, they decided to educate their peers. The students also determined that they wanted to do more to support a school in another region. Thus, they picked Durato Dela as their project. On January 22 the students walked 3 miles with their water jugs to raise awareness for their fundraiser.
We want to help our community understand more about the global water crisis. We want to be able to help a community in need of clean water.
Anoka National Honors society upholds four values: service, character, scholarship, leadership. We would like to raise money to volunteer.
We are two aspiring teenagers hoping to better the world with small steps. We watched a documentary about the water crisis around the world and were shocked by the vast lack of access to clean water. Ever since we were determined to contribute to the crisis.
Our 4th grade class will be helping to encourage our entire school to participate in helping more people have access to clean water. We are excited for all that we will learn!
