Holiday Cheer: Clean Water for 600 Children

Holiday Cheer to our Global Giving donors who have made clean water possible for 600 Muslim and Christian children in four elmentary schools in the Mindanao region of the Philippines.  This micro project supported better health for four additional schools under the AAI  umbrella program of Building Peace by Uniting Interr-Faith Children Through Education and Clean Water.  It was completely funded in less than three weeks.  I will be in Mindanao in mid-February 2016 to oversee and document the completion of the clean water systems.and hand washing facility being built by parents and other volunteers.  

This effort of providing equal care and comfort to these multi-cultural children in a severely impoverished and violence torn region sets an example of peace and instills confidence that they are not forgotten.  At a time when extremist and terrorist groups are seeking to recruit  young children, we continue to promote good health and a positive attitude to keep our communities actively engaged in education.  While  radical groups promote destruction and hatred, AAI's programs are a celebration of life and friendship. 

We are offering donors one more end-of-year opportunity to help us puirchase a water tank and hygiene facilities for one more school with 150 children -- Global Giving Project #22910 --  https://www.globalgiving.org/microprojects/clean-water-and-hygiene-for-150-children-in-mindanao 

We invite you to inform your friends that this opportunity for positive action is available for their participation. Every contribution maters.

We thank you for your kindness.
