Lionsgate Academy is a public charter school grades 7-12. We chose H2O for Life to support people in a region of the world we are studying in classes. We want to help assist an international project as we study about water in science and geography classes.
Interact is a group of Volunteers, and we strive to serve or school, community, and world.
The reason why we want to do this is because, it is our goal to help children all around the world to get clean water. Also, we know that clean water brings opportunities for things like education, health, life, and time to do other things. This is our sixth year raising money and we plan to continue doing so.
We are globally-minded students who care about the world. We can help the world and make a change in the world. We care about water. We want to help others in need. We want all people to have access to clean water. Others in the world deserve clean water too.
We want to follow the example of Jesus Christ to serve others. Share our blessings for a life sustaining cause - clean water.
The students love chances to do real world applications of their studies and help other students at the same time. While many of our students are economically disadvantaged, they still go out of their way to give what they can and find creative ways to raise money toward our goal.
The students at MMW really want to participate in H2O for Life because we are learning about how water and the lack of clean water can affect people all over the world. We learned about The Lost Boys and their story. We watched 'God Grew Tired of Us' and can see first hand that these people need our help. We can help them by giving them money to build a water well. We know how important water is and that they need water to survive, this is something we can do to take action and help our 'world family'.
We have been learning about renewable and nonrenewable resources. My students are thrilled to support this program and to help bring 3 jugs of clean water to these children everyday.
Our school mission is to prepare our students to make a positive contribution as they live and work in an ever-changing world. H2O for Life completely aligns with this mission. Our students are from low-income, highly mobile families. Maybe because their needs are not always met they understand the idea of wanting and not always having the basics. They were excited about the idea of raising money for a well to provide clean water.
