On May 3rd, the Roots and Shoots/We Club will be hosting We Walk for Water.
This campaign is to raise money for people in Tanzania who don’t have access to clean water.
As little as $25 can give someone water for life, and $1,000 can supply a town with a well that will provide residents a safe and feasible water supply.
Many people in rural areas, mostly girls, walk hours each day to and from a watering hole to provide bucket fulls of contaminated water for their families. These girls are not only saddled with this journey, but as a result also find it difficult to get an education.
What can we do to help? The City School students can sign up to walk for 15 minutes carrying water around the neighborhood during school hours on May 3.
There is a $3 donation to participate, and all proceeds will be funneled through the We Walk For Water campaign directly to Tanzania. We will also offer another platform for online donations which can be found here.
Our goal as a school is to raise $500 to provide clean water to people in Tanzania, which also happens to have been Jane Goodall's home, off and on, for over 50 years.
As if students would need incentive, but if we reach our goal there will be free dress, and the Advisory who raises the most cash money gets a special treat!
Lastly, we will be asking for parent volunteers to supervise the kids throughout the event, so if you are interested please reach out to Mr. Gray.

To date, WE Villages has provided over one million people with access to clean water and sanitation, and we’re just getting started. There are still 840 million people without access to clean water, and we can change that. For every £15 raised, you’ll provide one person with clean water for life!
