Our students read the book A Long Walk to Water. We want to participate as a culminating service learning project. When the students were done reading the book they realized that they had to take action and make a difference.
We are two aspiring teenagers hoping to better the world with small steps. We watched a documentary about the water crisis around the world and were shocked by the vast lack of access to clean water. Ever since we were determined to contribute to the crisis.
We are a public high school for students with special needs. We learned about the world's water crisis this year. We wanted to help students from another country gain access to clean water.
We are a IB School and want to give our children the understanding that being privileged should mean we ought to help those not so privileged.
Because "service learning is a way to teach, not a thing to teach" and it is my goal to build better global citizens via art... Using art as a means for grassroots activism vs. being a mere form of decoration... AND because my students have bought into the cause and feel a sense of responsibility! For us, it is all about compassion! Water IS life and everyone deserves that! Because it is our duty to care for our "Ubuntu"!
Jessie F. George Elementary School in the Township of Washington, New Jersey is planning a Walk for Water to sponsor the Mandirtala Akshay Vidyaphith School in India. The Walk for Water event is planned for Friday, April 26th and will most likely involve our entire school; approximately 250 students in grades K through 5 (grades K-2 in the morning and grades 3-5 in the afternoon).
In 1986 I went to Kenya during college for a semester. I loved it and vowed to return one day (before I had my own children). Well now my oldest son is 17 and my younger one is 13, so I didn't keep that vow. But I still have a strong interest in Kenya and know I will be back there some day.
Through the FBLA organization at PCTI, we would like to give back to the world through fundraising for this important cause.
Each year, the Ramtown School, in partnership Ramtown’s PTO and Student Council participate in a school-wide initiative entitled “Make a Difference Day.” This day highlights the importance of philanthropic opportunities for our students and staff. This year, we are seeking to use our Make a Difference Day on Earth Day to generate support and funding for the H2O for Life Project. We continue to strive to create well-rounded global thinkers and citizens. This initiative will promote several important values relative to "paying it forward" and making difference for other adults and children to improve their overall quality of life.
Ranney School has created a global citizens certificate program which encourages student leadership, community service, and education on the 2030 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. Our student leaders have decided to educate our school community on H2O for Life and its related UNSDG #6 (Clean Water and Sanitation). We plan to work with our elementary, middle, and upper school students to fundraise for at least one school per year.
Our curriculum is driven by the philosophy that children learn best by doing; hands-on experiences and activities help children internalize foundational skills and strategies for problem solving. Currently, our Second Grade and Third Grade are studying a unit on water. Through their studies they have learned about the challenges that children and families around the world face accessing clean water. Our students focused on the children of Nicaragua and wanted to take action to help them have cleaner water.
