We are reading the novel "A Long Walk to Water" by Linda Sue Park. We would like to assist in Salva's mission of getting clean water to those without it. We are interested in helping a village obtain clean drinking water. This is a seventh grade English Language Arts class.
This is the fourth year we join efforts with the H2O for Life Organization to build the awareness of the water crisis and provide help to bring clean water, sanitation facilities and hygiene education to the schools in need. We had a successful year and met our fundraising goals last year to help the students at Ebukanga Secondary School in Kenya, Wangui Primary School in Kenya the year before, and before that, Tobrise Basic Primary School in Nigeria. At the same time, our students had learned a lot from the service learning activities about the water crisis and the many ways that they can help make a difference. We would like to continue to participate in this meaningful project, get more students in our school communities involved, and once again surpass our fundraising goal.
At Hopewell Junior School, we have clean water everyday. The same can't be said for the students and teachers of Manera Primary School. Without clean water, the students are dropping out of school and not getting a proper education. Everyone deserves a proper education, just like we get daily. We hope to give the students a brighter future with our donation, by providing clean bathrooms and sanitary water.

I decided to ask for donations to support students in need instead of Christmas gifts this year. I am a teacher and like to see every student be successful. This starts with having your basic needs met and clean water is one of them.

Our school has been fundraising each year to bring clean water to countries in need. We started by raising money for LIfestraw Water filters in 2005. The last 4 years we have been raising funds to build solar wells in southern Nigeria for the Ozioma Hope for Wellness Corp (non-profit) and Missionary Teresa Thomas. The Nordonia Hills Rotary Club assists as well.This year the students discovered H20forlifeschools when trying to get PURR water filters for Ms. Thomas. We held a candy sale and raised over $2,200. We would like to donate $750 dollars to finish this project in Nigeria.
