We are students in Deering High School and are currently doing a Senior Capstone Project in our English class. The purpose of the Capstone Project is to find an issue that we are passionate about and help make a difference. We chose lack of clean drinking water in Africa because it is important that everyone has access to safe and drinkable water. Many Africans are forced to drink contaminated water that causes them to become very sick and potentially die. We hope to raise enough money so we can help reduce waterborne illnesses one well at a time. We also hope to raise this money by March 31 so please donate!
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.
