I want to gather a group of friends and any friends of their friends to help raise money to change other children’s lives. I was studying about the water crisis in Africa and then learned about this organization and that I could make a difference. My mom and I decided to organize a walk on November 30th. The plan is to meet at 8am on The Strand at El Porto and walk from there to our house. We will have bagels at coffee waiting at the house. We are open to anyone who wants to walk with us and help raise money or anyone who just wants to make a donation. Our goal is to raise the $2600 that will set these kids up for success.
The 7th grade class just read A Long Walk To Water in our study of the global and local water problems. We are going to do a local water awareness campaign but the students were so moved by the book that we wanted to get involved even though it is late in the year. I hope we can still help out!
Polytechnic is a K - 12 school located in Pasadena. California. We would like to help fund wells that will provide clean water for schools in South Sudan and throughout the world. Our students are taking the initiative to raise money in creative ways to help make clean water possible as well as the chance for more children to attend school.

On January 18, 2022, students in grades 6th-8th began reading the novel, A Long Walk to Water. Students have been blogging on Padlet walls about environmental sustainability, sharing their experiences with water, and collaborating about how they can educate others about the global water crisis in their language arts classes. In addition to reading the novel and completing language arts activities, students have been keeping track of their daily water usage, and are reviewing their data and findings. In science, they have been working on a water cycle project. In history, they have been taking a Google Earth Literature Trip of Salva and Nya’s journey and learning about people’s experiences in Southern Sudan during their civil war. Upon finishing the book, students will complete a culminating project to educate our school community about the global water crisis. Students will have the option to present at our annual Knowledge Fair on March 17, 2022. In conjunction with all of this learning, students started a Penny War on February 1st to raise funds to support school #4 in South Sudan. It is our goal that students meet H2O for Life’s mission; H2O for Life offers a service-learning opportunity designed to engage, educate and inspire youth to take action to solve the global water crisis by raising awareness and funds to support implementation of water, sanitation and hygiene education projects for global partner schools.
The Riverbank Rotary Club sponsors the High School Interact Club. We conducted an event by having people walk the track carrying a gallon of water and solicited funds for the number of laps walked.
River Oak is a Waldorf Charter School. Our seventh grade class has been together since first grade. We want to participate because in Northern California we cannot imagine, especially with our yearly fires, what it would be like without water. We want to be the change, make a difference in our world and learn to be insightful global leaders.
Sandia School is a Character Counts School, learning to become great Kids for Character. We are reaching out and becoming Global Citizens. Cheribo Primary School serves 946 students and Sandia serves approximately 950 students. So we felt compelled to sponsor them, and bring latrines, hand washing stations, a rain catchment tank and hygiene education to their school. We hope to raise more than enough funds to give them everything they need. We are also hoping to become more aware of those in need around us, and across the globe.
We chose this because we really want to help them have what we consider basic necessities. We don't want them to get sick from unclean water or miss school because of water issues. Also, we think that we can actually raise this much money by May and plan on going over our pledge and giving the extra to another school.
