Our service learning group The Changemakers, raised the funds through a student driven project where they taught lessons in classrooms about water access, presented at our assemblies, and did things at home in order to contribute!
2 students in Trabuco Hills High have developed a sympathy for the young children in third world countries who are not able to receive the same luxury as the residents in Orange County. After hearing about this program, they decided to start a club in their school to help support the cause. Together, they recruited over 20 members who all recognize the seriousness of the current California drought and cannot fathom what it would be like in less developed countries. They have established a goal of adopting a school and help raise money for the school though local fundraisers.
Westridge School for Girls has a deep commitment to service. This is our eighth year working with H2O for Life, building clean water infrastructure in countries from Kenya to Vietnam, Uganda to the Dominican Republic. Students have passionately raised awareness about the lack of fresh water in the developing world, and have loved making a real difference in their world! Our middle school Water Warriors were very motivated when they learned that children on the other side of the world would be able to attend school, that rather than spending hours walking for water, girls could receive an education, once a well is built. We also look forward to communicating with the kids at the school, and hoping to build relationships with the people benefiting from what we are able to build!
Whitney High School wants to help others in need. It's important to do your part to help the less fortunate. This is a great opportunity to be united and raise money to help others in third world countries.
