On the Seventh Day of Christmas, the Students Gave to Thee The Habit of Preparedness
...to Improve Water Access
Picture yourself running to school. You so want to learn, but you can't make it to the campus on time because your family obligations require that you fetch clean drinking water in the morning. The task is easier said than done.
Many rural Liberian children come late to school due to the length of their journey to find clean water. The Shaloka School students responded by looking at ways to advance education while also addressing the needs of their broader community. They researched water access options employed by seven nearby communities. They enlisted the help of their local community chairman, who welcomed their aid in appealing to officials to map out plans to improve water access in their residents.
By integrating their academics, and service with their habits-of-heart, they began to slake the thirst of their immediate families and also their human family.
As we highlight 12 of this past month's project reports, consider how much your contribution catapults not just one child's strengths but the capacities of the societies in which they serve.
Please help sustain their efforts to foster a generation of true change agents.
