On Friday, September 21, representatives from the Thirst Project visited campus to present to Middle School students. The Thirst Project's mission is to build a socially-conscious generation of young people who END the global water crisis. They do this by educating students about it and activating them to rock the clean water cause and build real water projects all over the world. Why Water? Health and Sanitation: Waterborne diseases kill more children every single year than AIDS, Malaria, and all world violence combined. Small children typically do not have strong enough immune systems to fight diseases like cholera, dysentery, or schistosomiasis.
The presentation was also in support of our global PBL water project that Grades 5 and 6 are participating in with Stuart Country Day School and Riffa Views International School (RVIS).
