It is sometimes hard for people here in Minnesota, "the land of 10,000 lakes", to imagine a place parched and dry, with no clean water for miles and miles. In fact, the great Mississippi River flows right through our town, and our school is named after all the raccoons that live and fish from the rocky rapids there. But after reading a new book by Barbara Park called The Long Walk For Water, our Eco-Teens Club wanted to help those former Lost Boys of Sudan bring clean drinking water to their homeland, South Sudan
Help Us Fund Important WASH Projects! <b>Download a PDF copy of our Virtual Walk for Water flyer <a href="https://h2oforlife.wpengine.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/04/virtual-walk-for-water-v05.pdf">here.</a></b> Due to COVID-19, many H2O for Life schools are unable to raise funds for their partner schools as they had planned this year. Because of this unfortunate situation, we need to raise $94,430 in order to complete the 60 projects that have been pledged. As a water, sanitation and hygiene education (WASH) organization, education on disease prevention is a core part of the work we support. We're all in this together, so it's time for everyone to be a helper. Let's all do our part to contribute to the common good, so that when this crisis is over, we're proud of how we came together. Support our work and give today. Please consider creating a personal fundraiser and asking your social circle to contribute. Please share photos/videos of your Walk on social media.

This is our second year with H2O for Life. Last year, the students participated as part of a Health Class. This year, in an ongoing effort to increase service-learning opportunities for our students, we are offering 9 sections of a Service-learning class. Last June, we began a tradition of an H2O for Life 5K Fun Run. This year, with more students and staff involved we're looking forward to even greater success.
The preparation at DeLaSalle High School fosters the development of students who are of service to the local, national, and global community both during and after their formal education. A cornerstone of this preparation is DeLaSalle's innovative Global Advantage Program. This program serves to create international citizens through academic travel. DeLaSalle faculty and partner university professors collaborate to develop rich academic experiences. These experiences combine rigorous academic work with international travel. Students in this program are expected to demonstrate curiosity and civility; preparation and participation.
Diamond Path goals include helping others in our communities, nation and world plus learning about cultures and countries around the world. H2O for Life projects enable us to accomplish both these goals.
Divine Mercy Catholic School is working this year to complete a list of both corporal and spiritual Works of Mercy. At our school we encourage our students to serve others through their time, talent and treasure. Every month DMCS students raise money for an individual charity. They also do projects during Advent and Lent. This year we felt called to do one large project as opposed to those smaller ones. This project called to us in that it went beyond the giving of treasure but helped to fulfill a schools basic need. We look forward to completing the Corporal Work of Mercy: Give drink to the thirsty.
Support my Service Learning Project which is for a WASH (water and sanitation hygiene) project to be implemented at schools in Kenya. Kathungu School and Nasaruni School. Come see me at Marketfest on July 11th to purchase homemade dog treats. I am close to meeting my goal!

My friends and I are excited about this service and entrepreneurial opportunity!
My school wants to participate in this project so that we can change lives. We are very committed in making this project successful. We would also love to learn about different cultures and this project will give us that chance and in addition, we will be able to learn about water, its effects and impacts.Our goal is to make sure children of this generation get a chance to have a good quality education with good hygiene and succeed in life so that they too can make a difference in other people's lives. We want to expose students in East Ridge High school to global issues and how life is different in other countries.This is a new club in our school but we are planning to make it one of the best so that the incoming students of the next years can keep projects going. Fellow students and I are very excited for the goals we will accomplish, the things we will learn and the fun we will have. This a chance of a lifetime which is to change people's lives and make them smile. Thanks H2O for Life!
8th Grade Science students at FAIR School Crystal were shocked to learn that many people lack access to clean water. This spurred students to ask the question, "What can we do to help?". Students are proud to raise funds and do something positive to make a difference in the world.
