"We at Sacred Heart School live and work to nurture each child through a Christ-filled environment by preparing all to value the quality of life. We strive for religious and academic excellence while we enhance the success of each child both now and for the future." The words above are the Mission Statement for the Sacred Heart of Jesus School in Hanover, Pennsylvania, in the United States of America. More than just words, these sentences embody the guiding principles of the educational experience at Sacred Heart School. We value the importance of this message beyond just our own classrooms, though. Jesus, Himself, said, “For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me.” (Mt 25:35) True to the Gospel message and our Catholic heritage, we strive to extend our spirit of service to those in need to “enhance the success of each child both now and for the future." Please join us in our efforts and prayerfully consider joining Sacred Heart School in our efforts to assist our brothers and sisters in Christ. May God bless you always!

The Social Impact Committee of TU-AMA is dedicated to improving the local and global community that we live in. We participate in various community service projects in Philadelphia and around the world.
We are a Pre-k to 12th grade school. We strive to be a school that educates our girls on sustainable practices and awareness on issues that impact the health and safety of our community and world. Understanding the importance of water as a resource is important. We take it for granted in the Philadelphia region but want our students to know that many parts of the world do not have the abundance we enjoy. Helping another school is important to us. And as a girls school we know that the work of hauling water falls largely on girls and women.
We have developed a year-long, school-wide curriculum about water access. H2O for Life will be bringing Katie Spotz to campus. We want to apply our understanding of global water access to solving this problem in a community in need.
"The service learning program at The Haverford School; in Haverford, PA (USA) is designed to put into action our belief that, through service to others, we can know ourselves better and make a difference in the world. We offer an extensive co-curricular volunteer program, where students have opportunities to use their talents and interests in offering valuable service to others. Volunteering in a global service project such as H2O For Life offers our faculty and staff and students and their families the opportunity to become involved in the global community and to make an impact on the lives of those in need. Participating in the Walk for Water provides the boys with an opportunity to develop empathy for their global peers. Our students study conservation of water while reading and researching about the effects a limited potable water supply has on children and families around the world. Haverford second grade boys make presentations to members of our community across divisions, from preschool to our most senior students. They work in tandem with our Upper School Service Learning Core to raise awareness about the plight for clean water as well as funds to build a well or latrines for primary school children like themselves. This is our fifth year of entering into this partnership with H2O for life, bringing access to clean water to remote villages and schools in Africa. This is a service learning project for our second grade students which will allow them to collaborate with others students across the globe in a meaningful way, which will authentically meet the needs of the school, community and the well being of others.
