Walk for Water

June, 2007

Our major fundraiser, The Walk For Water was a heartwarming success. Media came to cover the event for the evening news as well as an interview with Priya Ramu on the radio show On the Coast. There is a book of photos you can look at located which is located in the library.

Our kids learned something about what it means to carry water and our small community responded very generously, and word began to spread about our project. Cheques and Pay Pal donations arrived, some from people without a connection to the school. Meanwhile, our community began sending unsolicited donations; children initiated the selling of lemonade; children actually asked for donations to the well instead of birthday presents.
