Making Waves from Cleveland to Uganda
There are 700 students at St. Bonaventure School in Uganda. Half are orphans. Each child has to walk miles a day for water and haul it back to school. Then they need to boil it in the shack pictured in the gallery below. Older kids carry about 5 gallons at a time. Because the girls are not “sanitary” 1 week out of the month and washing conditions do not exist, they are unable to attend school. When they travel so far for water, they are often unsafe.
Drink Local Drink Tap has joined Blue Planet Network in order to better organize, plan, fund and track a water project serving the entire school. In addition, Drink Local Drink Tap is filming a documentary about the school's situation, the water project, and how communities from Cleveland and beyond are pitching in.
Because of the urgency and readiness of the community to work on this project, Drink Local Drink Tap is hoping to do most of the fund raising for this project. Your help is greatly needed, and all levels of financial support will have tremendous impact.
