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 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.”
We are a Catholic school dedicated to creating graduates whose attitudes, values, personal and spiritual attributes are instilled by a community of faith, hope, and love. We are making a positive impact on the world through our actions. We feel the need to advocate for social justice. Providing safe water for people less fortunate than ourselves is an ideal way we can share what is bountiful in our lives with those who have a need in theirs.
St. Therese is a diverse, welcoming community that seeks to ignite the faith, minds, and dreams of its students to prepare them to excel spiritually, academically, and socially in high school, college, and beyond. Founded in 1927, we are in our 90th school year this year! We want to let our sisters and brothers around the globe know that they matter, that we care, and that we will strive to live more simply so they can live more abundantly.
Our group at Technology, Engineering & Communications High School would love to participate in H2O for Life cause because we are dedicated to raise awareness and help those in need. Katie Spotz visited our school and explained current situations families are faced with due to the lack of a reliable and clean water source. In response, we decided to accept the challenge and we want to put forth our time and effort to become a helping hand to the less fortunate. We are extremely efficacious and genuinely believe we can impact those who need clean water and an education. Our compassion and empathy draws us to this issue and we know that as a group we can create change. We believe in our cause and want to make the world a better place for all.
Our school would like to help because we are students who live in a safe, wonderful part of the world. We recognize that not all people around have the basic resources they need for survival. Our goal as a group is to raise awareness, educate ourselves and others, and try to positively impact the world. Water is a human right that everyone needs and deserves, however that is not the case. We want to change that, long term. We feel that helping others through this project will be a stepping stone for 30 future social leaders.
