We are 6th graders from MS447 and are raising money after learning more about this organization through our water stewardship program at school. Thank you for helping!
For their water stewardship action project, Korey, Melvyn and Muhanad held a lemonade/bake sale to raise money for H2O for Life.
For my final Exploration project we learned about being a water steward and so choose to fund raise for this cause as my project.
PS 101 would like to help and learn about other communities. The project will expand the knowledge and awareness of our own students through lessons on the Global Water Crisis (related to environment/science), empathy, appreciation and gratitude for what they have (social emotional learning), and Respect for All -- communicating and helping others who are not as fortunate as we are. Overall this fosters a sense of responsibility, awareness, and a different perspective on life. Aside from that it will also increase student awareness of other cultures in the world (being a global citizen).
We are artists and activists devoted to changing the world, one potholder at a time. This is our ELEVENTH year weaving potholders in support of water rights. All of our materials are donated, so every penny we make goes directly to H2O for Life. The potholders are 100% cotton, made from loops from Harrisville Designs, a mill in New Hampshire. Therefore, they are entirely made in the USA! We sell two sizes: 6x6" for $8 each and 8.5x8.5” for $12. This is Ella's eleventh year weaving potholders and Mabel's seventh! Last summer we raised $5,700 to build hand-washing stations, new latrines, and a rain catchment tank for the 451 students of Madegwa Primary School in Kenya and the 60 students of Gagadi School in Jodhpur, India. Our new goal is our largest ever: to raise $6600 for the 1872 students and 18 teachers of Matsimbe Secondary School in Malawi. Custom orders are always welcome. Thank you for your love and support.

Every day, one billion people make a three hour journey to gather water! There is a water crisis throughout the world that is creating economic, social, educational and, worst of all, life threatening conditions. We can help change that statistic for our partner school. We have the opportunity to provide a transformational service-learning opportunity for our students through H2O for Life. Our students will study issues surrounding the global water crisis, learn about their partner school and country, and will plan and implement activities that raise funds to help bring water and sanitation to our partner school. We want our students to know that by working together, we can make a difference in the world! We hope that all students in our school will benefit from our partnership with H2O for Life. Students will be challenged to think about their own habits concerning water usage, and will develop awareness of the enormity of the issues surrounding water in our world. We hope our school will be committed to make this project for our partner school a reality.
Each year, we encourage our students to become involved in a charitable service project to foster activism within the global community. Our first year, we decided to direct our efforts towards a charity that directly benefits children, so we signed on to help raise funds for Ecole Mixte Action Fraternelle in Haiti. Our students rose to the challenge and exceeded their fundraising goal. As our continued hope, is to foster a sense of responsibility and fellowship with others in their age group who do not have access to the same basic necessities of daily life, we have decided to take on an entire project on our own this year. Two years ago, we decided to sponsor a well in South Sudan. We encouraged community outreach, by sending student groups to local business and fellowship groups to explain our cause and solicit financial support. There were additional fundraising and educational opportunities throughout the year. Again, our students surpassed the goal. last year we again sponsored a school in Haiti, while also supporting parish relief efforts in Puerto Rico, and greatly surpassed our goal. This year, we will focus our efforts for maintenance to a well and water supply in the Dominican Republic. This will help keep the water clean and flowing at a school with a large Haitian population. Our 6th, 7th and 8th graders will participate in a walk in June to “put themselves in the shoes” of those for whom water is not easily accessible. We will also be including the primary grades, by having them complete an abbreviated walk.
The BRAVE Institute is an organization that works to inspire and challenge humans to be brave and self-empowered contributors to a better world. We have recently learned about the impact that lack of clean water can have on girls and their education and love H2O for life and all it stands for. BRAVE will be organizing a "Walk for Water" at The University of Connecticut on April 18th at 11am!
