As Mr. Bochnovic's Social Studies class is investigating Africa we cannot help but talk about the Water Crisis that affects many people.
After the students were introduced and fully aware of the Crisis unfolding in Africa, there was an overwhelming amount of students eager to help!
Each student has received and decorated a disposable coffee cup donated by the local Starbucks Coffee. It is the students' goal to drink nothing but water for the next few weeks. Each time a student is going to spend money on a soda, juice drink, energy drink, etc. they are to put the money they would have spent into the Coffee Cup to donate toward this worthy cause.
With student participation and your donations on this site we hope to reach our goal and help dig another 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.
The Water Project, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization unlocking human potential by providing clean, safe water to communities around the world who suffer needlessly without.
Working with local partners in countries like Kenya, Rwanda, Sierra Leone, South Sudan, and Uganda, we build long lasting water projects that are organized, owned and managed by the communities receiving them.
Together, with our partners we identify, implement, report on and follow up on every project. Then we share the whole story with you to inspire confidence in the work being done and the impact it has.
