Grade 6 students at The American School in London have been learning about water scarcity around the world. They researched several projects on the H2O for Life website and made compelling reasons why certain projects should get their support.
Students at the Anglo-American International School of Sofia are involved in a Global Citizenship Project in which they are committed to helping others locally as well as on a global scale. We are excited to have the opportunity to help schools that are in need of accessible fresh drinking water and new latrines. Our PreK-12 students will participate in an awareness campaign beginning on March 22nd - World Water Day. We are interested in educating others about the importance of what many of us take for granted - clean and accessible water. We plan to fundraise with a coin drive and bakesales leading up to our Walk for Water which will be held on April 17th this year. We appreciate that H2O provides us the opportunity to help others as well as the chance to raise awareness about the water crisis within an international community.
I am a grade two student at Fish Creek School in Calgary. I am also a member of Scouts Canada, serving my third year in the Beaver program with Section McKenzie 210, in Calgary. When a project to complete my North Star Award for Beavers came up, I wanted to do something bigger than just picking up litter in my community. With the help of my mom, we came up with the idea to raise money for a cause or charity. We did some research and thought this would be perfect! I will be walking 5km with my mom, to raise funds to support Calvary Cross Junior School, which is located in Luwero district in the Central region of Uganda. We have not set a date for the walk yet, but we are working on it! We are hoping to raise the $2,035 needed in order to bring water to their school and community. Thanks for your support!
