Fifth graders have been learning about water and its properties in class. To connect to communities outside of our own, we decided to participate in a fundraiser. The Water Project is a fantastic fundraiser, assists those in need in Africa, and aligns well with our curriculum in the classroom and in art.
To raise money, students are creating clay cups in art. These cups will be for sale during the night of our all school art show. We will donate the funds earned to the Water Project in hopes to assist in building a water well in Africa.
Did you know nearly 1 billion people don't have safe water to drink?
Together, we can change that. Let's fund a new source of drinking water for those who suffer needlessly without it!
Our gifts will be used to construct or rehabilitate a water project, like a well or sand dam, in Africa. We'll see pictures, GPS coordinates, and updates as they come in from the actual water project we fund so we can celebrate the results along with the community we help.
