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.
The sixth grade at Falmouth Middle School is excited to embark on this opportunity to connect their study of India with a service learning project that helps people live and thrive. Students will be learning about the global water crisis and the effects that water scarcity has on people in India. We are all excited to put our energies and minds together to help solve and alleviate a real world problem!
We are third graders from the United States. In school, we have been learning about the water cycle. When we watched a video about how some parts of the world do not have clean water to drink like we do, it made us very sad. We had to do something! We feel like every kid should be safe from viruses and have fresh water to drink so they can be healthy. We think it is important to help others, even in just a small way. That is why we decided to help H2O For Life.
Katie runs, rows, swims, and cycles for clean water. This September, Katie embarked on Ride4Water, a 360-mile journey cycling along the Atlantic shoreline from Lubec to Kittery. This July, Katie also embarked on Run4Water, an attempt to run 11 ultramarathons in 11 days to fund 11 clean water projects in Uganda, setting a new world record for the most consecutive ultramarathons along the way. The journey has ended but the fundraising effort continues. Join us in creating a world where everyone, everywhere has clean water to drink.
Every year the third grade at Raymond Elementary studies water and the life it sustains in our local environment. This year we decided to add to our project. We wanted to look at what water is like around the world. We have been learning about water conservation efforts in our own state of Maine. We are also very excited to learn about water and the impact it has on children around the world who are just like us. We were so surprised to learn that water is not readily available in many places, and that children actually die from not having clean water to drink. So we decided that we wanted to make a difference for a school of children who need access to clean drinking water.
