Abigail (14), a leader now and in the future

This is Abigail. She is 14. Abigail has big dreams. She wants to be a doctor. She wants to have a big family when she grows up. She wants to speak five languages. She wants to be a leader and help improve the community around her. She wants to start with clean water.  

There are 1,200 children like Abigail at the CFM school in downtown Port-au-Prince. Thanks to International Action’s chlorinator, Abigail and her classmates are healthy because they have clean, safe water every day. Abigail is one of the student leaders at CMF and she wants help spread the word about the importance of clean water, how it improves people’s health, and in turn, their happiness. 

Abigail and the director of the school want to start a community service project in which student “Clean Water Ambassadors” visit other schools to teach their peers about potable water. They have asked our staff to lead a week of seminars and trainings for the new Clean Water Ambassadors. The program will begin September, 2013, as the current school year has already come to a close. They plan to reach at least five schools in 2013.   

Abigail wants to lead change, she wants to help other Haitians protect their water supplies. We are with her. With your support we can support the Clean Water Ambassadors and install chlorinators in more schools. 

 

All the best,

Zach
