Environmental education is a core value at AFSA High School. We strive to connect students to both their environment and their community. Being an H2O for Life school is one of the ways we make meaningful learning opportunities available to students and work toward our school's mission. Our school's NHS Chapter is leading our fundraising and awareness efforts. Last year we helped build a well in Uganda. This year we hope to get more of the school involved in this important project through monthly hat days, selling H2O for life t-shirts, and other fun events. We are excited to make a difference!

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.
In 2017-2018 AVID 11 is organizing a set of fundraisers to purchase water filters for Puerto Rico. We have pledged to raise at least $750 through H2O for Life. They raised over $1200.
