Through a student led charitable initiative, our school has the opportunity to take action and help make a difference in the global water crisis. The Ira Jones students have the opportunity to “Walk for Water” as an awareness-raising concept and fundraiser. The event will take place during one PE class on either May 15th or 16th, during which students are invited to carry gallon jugs to simulate what many women and children do every day. Our goal is to not only raise awareness to the global water crisis but to help provide a new well for Igunda Primary School.
Global Goal 6 - Clean Water & Sanitation If we can make this goal a reality, we can make a huge impact on every other global goal as well.
As a part of our sophomore seminar project, our section of the Lake Forest Academy sophomore class is required to choose a service project to pursue. We chose to fund an H2O for life school and raise a portion of the funds for it. Unfortunately we have a time limit to gather funds and although our goal is to raise "A kilometer of pennies" (which is equivalent to around 550 dollars). We expect that we will be able to reach about $300 realistically.
We are a PreK-5th grade elementary school in the western suburbs of Chicago, Illinois! Our 5th grade students have started a service learning project. This school year, our goal is to raise a minimum of $2,000 for two schools.
During science, eighth graders spend time learning about water and fresh water sources. When learning about areas around the world without clean water, we voted to begin fundraising in order to support H2O for Life. We not only want to help communities in need, but raise an awareness as well. We feel that often times, we take for granted what many other people in the world do without, and this was one way to have a direct influence in helping others and supporting a great cause!
Our Service Club is excited to serve less fortunate people around the globe. Senn High School is committed to being globally aware and doing what we can to make the world a better place.
Wheaton Christian Grammar School is ending the year in service with a SMART Walk 4 Water put on by SMART2bfit. We will have a service learning day that will educate us about Tanzania and global water scarcity while raising funds for borehole wells for the children of Tanzania. This well benefit 418 children who typically have to walk nearly 4 miles every morning before school to fetch water at the Lipuli Secondary School. Our hope is that WCGS will better understand water scarcity throughout the world, have a greater heart for service, and will raise funds for 2 wells in Tanzania.
St. Patrick School is a Pre-K-8th Grade Catholic School located in Wadsworth, Illinois. We have been inspired to help the global water crisis after reading A Long Walk to Water by Linda Sue Park. We are a service-oriented school, and are excited to use our resources to help a school in need.
The Joseph Sears School is a K-8 public school in the Chicago suburbs. This student-led Student Advisory Board chose H20 for Life as their service project. The students feel that the world water shortage is an important problem which demands increased attention and education. The students feel very privileged to have water at their fingertips and hope to raise awareness and funds for this important cause.
