We are a Interact club sponsored by Rotary of Yakima that focuses on solving world issues and local issues. We are interested in bringing awareness to our own society about the need for water not just locally but to the world as we understand it contributes to pandemics and other global concerns. We need our world to be a better place and afford opportunities to girls in education, most girls are unable to attend school in secondary level.
Our goal is simple: to have our students experience joy in the spirit of giving; to recognize that they have the power to make a positive impact in the lives of other children; and to instill an enthusiasm for global stewardship through acts of compassion and kindness.
East Valley Central students saw the H2O video and were humbled about how we take so many daily things for granted. As our mission is to be Better Citizens of the Earth, this fit perfectly for a service project. We can't imagine the ordeal families go through to survive each day, and some do not live through that day. We are proud to be a part of this crusade and hope we become responsible caring global citizens.
We at Gray Middle School felt that supporting a schools hygiene education was a great way to help young people understand a healthy life style and how they can be proactive in having a long and healthy life. Also, some of our students have personal stories of teachers, pastors and family members who have seen the struggles of the families in Haiti and wanted to do their own part to help!
Our gardening club was inspired to get involved at the Youth Environmental Summit where we heard about other local schools who were able to help.
Our AVID group at Rogers High School have decided to help H2O for life schools specifically Womulalu Special school in Kenya. We want to be able to do something much bigger than ourselves and being a high school senior class, we hope to inspire more people in our school to do things such as help out people around the world who may not have what we do so easily.
We are a Senior class of A.V.I.D. students at John R. Rogers high school in Spokane, Washington. We heard about this fundraiser and immediately wanted to help! We strive to help better our community and are excited to help beyond our city.
Our club is called the Service Warriors. We are passionate about making a difference in the world around us. We want to be engaged in the world, and one way we do that is to actively be a contributing citizen for a better world. In the words of Mother Teresa, we believe that “It's not how much we give but how much love we put into giving.”
Every day, one billion people make a three-hour journey to gather water! There is a water crisis throughout the world that is creating economic, social, educational and, worst of all, life-threatening conditions. We can help change that statistic.
