My name is Britney LeClair and I am in the 7th grade. I am starting a project in social studies class called “Be the Change.” This project was inspired by Mahatma Gandhi who said this famous line “Be the change that you wish to see in the world.”
I have been researching different challenges that exist in the world and I chose to do something about the lack of clean water througout the world. I also wanted to relate this project to something that I have done or experienced, so I related it to somewhere that I have been. When I went to Honduras last year I saw people carrying buckets of water to and from their houses and I saw young kids bathing in dirty rivers.
Therefore, I am fundraising for the organization for my “Be the Change” project. They will use the money to provide lasting water and sanitary solutions in 9 different countries around the world (including Honduras). Please help me make a sustainable change in the world.
