Hi!

School has been back in session for a few weeks now and that means thousands of kids, from kindergarten through high school, are going back to learning new things and sharing new experiences with others. It also means that more than ever, the kids will need accurate and simple information on how and where to get clean water, clean their hands, and stay healthy.

Over the summer, we provided a few teachers with pamphlets, posters, purification tablets and soap to ensure they were ready for the new school year. In the first few days of school, we met with a few young children’s parents, who were beaming with joy and pride as they watched their children go to school, and got reassurance that the water they will drink while at school will be safe.  

We are encountering challenges acquiring enough resources to share with beneficiaries, so please continue to spread the word about the project so that we can continue our work!

Thanks for your support
