We are surrounded by water here on the Eastern Shore of Maryland, and we are fortunate to have a brand new school building with beautiful bathrooms and clean water. We would like to help students in other countries have access to clean water and sanitation through H2O for Life!
Benoist Farms Elementary School has chosen to participate in the H2O for Life fundraiser because our students understand the importance of helping others.... whether within our community or around the world. The "Water Wobble" event, which is a dance in our cafeteria, gives our students a chance to have fun but also raise donations for a very important cause.
Be the Dream inspires young adults to transform their dreams into a reality through education, service, and leadership.
We are a faith based child care center who hopes to teach our young children the value of helping others. Our center has previously partnered with H2O for Life to build wells in Kenya and Guatemala. Water is a basic need of all humans, a need that even the smallest children understand.
The Big Sun Foundation is aiming to raise $5,000 to help the Totolya Primary School in Guatemala gain access to improved water, sanitation, and hygiene education. There are a total of 70 families in the San Lucas Toliman municipality, and the school, right next to the town meeting hall, is the prominent feature of the community. Both the teachers and parents have actively demonstrated great interest, enthusiasm and gratitude towards the installation of the water tank.
Bishop Abraham Elementary school is comprised of 249 students from Kindergarten to Grade 6. We were very excited to help out Taita School in Tanzania last year. Our school was very grateful to the other schools who helped us with the project. The students in our school, through the Social Action committee and The Rotary club are learning to become Global Citizens.It is very important to help our neighbors both near and far.
We are a group of well educated and opened minded students who want to make a better impact on the world. We would be holding school activities to raise money for these fundraisers.
What is the problem that needs to be addressed in the industry/ community? Water is scarce and unsanitary. What is something you would like to do to help solve this issue? I would like to contribute to the fund raising effort to bring students attending Ndubai Primary School a Rain Catchment Tank, New Latrines, and a Handwashing Station. $2400 out of $4400 are still needed. There is no minimum funding goal to achieve. All help will contribute to bettering the lives of Ndubai Primary School students. How will this positively impact the community? (What do you hope to accomplish?) Abroad: For one, Blackstone Academy can proudly claim to be one of the very few, if not the only school in RI, to be partnered with a sister school abroad in need of water. Blackstone: The fundraising efforts that will be undertaken will result in educating Blackstone students of the importance of water. My goal besides actually bringing clean drinking water to a school that needs it, is to persuade the Blackstone community to more efficiently and appreciatively use water. I’d like to partner Blackstone Academy with a school abroad that is need of clean drinking water, Ndubai Primary School in Kenya. I will hold a school-wide fundraiser. This won’t be the standard fundraiser competition with a pizza party at the end. Blackstone as a whole will work towards raising funds to aid our partner school. To reduce project complexity, all donations will be made in the main office, where funding would be most secure. Most revenue will be made from students that hold jobs and are willing to bring collection boxes to their their respective jobs and collect money at the cash register. I work at Walgreens, a corporate company, and have done this with the ‘Pennies for Patients’ fundraiser with adequate success.
