Many children around the world spend their days collecting water for their families or home sick with a water-related illness instead of going to school. With safe water nearby, they can earn an education and build the future of their communities. And with an education and better health, kids are more likely to break the cycle of poverty and become leaders in their communities.
Anyone can raise money for water projects on our fundraising site, mycharitywater.org. But imagine if all your friends, your classmates, your teachers -- your whole school! -- knew that millions of kids in the world right now don't have a chance to go to school because they don't have access to clean water. Get them on board to change this. On average, $20 can provide one person with access to a clean water project. How much could your entire school raise? Challenge your classmates. See how many you can work together to help!
