Together we can make a difference. 

This spring, Mounds View High School DECA and H2O for Life Club partnered to host a community Walk for Water, raising awareness about the Global Water Crisis and funding a water well for a school in need.

Thank you to everyone who helped make this event a success! A special shout out to our talented photographers Vicky Li and Sandy Zhang!

The Mounds View High School community gathered at the MVHS track on Saturday, May 11th to enjoy a fun afternoon supporting a global cause. The walk featured a raffle with many great prizes including gift cards, water bottles, free food certificates, and more! Participants of all ages were challenged to walk a 5K while carrying water in order to simulate the water collection process that many women and children must complete every day. Thanks to the efforts and donations of the entire community, we raised over $2300 in one week, nearly doubling our original goal!

Many women and children in the developing world walk an average of 3.7 miles everyday to find water.
Dirty water leads to diseases including Typhoid, Cholera, and Dysentery.
Young children have no choice but to skip school to collect water.

There is a global water crisis.

1 in 3 schools worldwide have no access to clean water

A child dies every 20 seconds due to lack of access to clean water

Women and children worldwide spend 200 million hours each day collecting drinking water. Children who spend their day collecting water instead of going to school are unable to get a proper education and create a better future for themselves.

Mena Primary School

Mena Primary School is located on the Lobule Refugee Camp in Koboko, Uganda. The 763 students that attend this school currently have no access to clean water. 
All money raised during this campaign goes to H2o For Life where it will be used to build a water well for this school.
