- DId you know 780 million people live without clean water ?
- More than ⅓ of Africa's population has a scarcity of access to safe water.
- Over the past 40 years the world population has doubled amd water use has quadrupled.
- There will be 1 million more months to feed worldwide by 2050
We sixth graders at Brittany Woods Middle School are very concerned that there are so many people around the world who do not have clean drinking water. We are working with WE Schools on the campaign #WEWalkForWater to raise money. Every $25 donated will give water to a person for a lifetime. Our donations are added to other WE School donations to build wells in Africa and South America.
Please help us and give whatever you can. Everyone who donates will be thanked by name on our WE Walk for Water bulletin board near the gym hallway.
Here are other things we've planned:
-Between May 13 and 17, Everyone who buys a button gets entered into a raffle for a pizza lunch with dessert with friends in Mrs. Cummings' room or the cafeteria.
-We are making presentaitons in social studies class to teach our classmates about world water issues.
-During field day, BWMS sixth graders will take turns walking with heavy containers of water so that we can build empathy for kids around the world who don't get an education because they spend their days just trying to survive.
