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.
We are a preK-8 school in Blue Hill, Maine. Our 7th grade class recently read the book "A Long Walk to Water" and was inspired to find a way to help. The 7th grade is leading a whole school effort to raise awareness and funds to support water initiatives around the world.
Bluff Creek Elementary is a public elementary school serving students in grades K-5. We are beyond excited for the opportunity to help support schools in need around the world! Project Impact involves 5th graders in learning project management skills through civic engagement. The United Nations Sustainable Development goals serve as inspiration for the 12 local and global service projects. The youth in Project Impact H2O are supporting the Global Goal "Clean Water and Sanitation" by choosing to support Alipi Primary School. Students will work together to host a lemonade stand and walk for water to support public awareness and fundraising efforts.
As IB Students we want to find a project where we can think globally and act locally.
At Booth-Fickett, we make every effort to ensure that all students are able to learn in a safe environment. Our school community is compelled and inspired to help fellow students in need.
Brand g Vacations is a tour operator specializing in LGBT travel. My husband Troy and had the privilege to travel to Tanzania as part of a familiarization trip to determine if it would be a good fit for a Brand g Vacations tour. We were not only impressed with the country as a destination, but were also so impressed by the warmth and hospitality of the Maasai people we met. We were also incredibly moved by the stories of hardship these communities face, including the lack of easily accessible clean drinking water. I remembered having met Patty Hall from H2O for Life and wondered if they could help. I was able to introduce Engaruka to H2O and thus the start of this fundraising effort.
