Hello St.Boniface community! We are your Social Justice League. Our next campaign is the WE Walk For Water, which will be taking place on May 10th, 2019.
“What is WE Walk For Water?”, you may ask. As a school community, students will be walking around the neighbourhood for about the same distance and time as somebody in a developing nation would, to get water. They may live far away from a well or river, which is why they have to walk so far. They have to carry heavy jugs of water for the long walk, which is very tiring. On top of that, the sources from which they retrieve water are not always safe to drink.
WE Walk for Water is important because not only will students be able to see how difficult it is for these families, but through our fundraiser, every $25 that is donated to WE Charity will provide one person with clean water for life! This is very helpful because when communities gain access to clean water, young girls can go to school, women can work for themselves and earn money, families can have better farming and better food, and the general health of the entire community improves.
St. Boniface, LET’S WALK FOR WATER!
