A complete education is one that helps students to develop a social conscience and an empowering belief in their own ability to effect change. Since the beginning, we’ve given talks at schools where teachers or parents were interested in exposing children to global issues.
In working with schools, our goal is first to create awareness of the dire need for safe water in West Africa and the plight of women and girls who walk miles to find water. In almost all classrooms and assemblies, students found out about this problem for the first time. Their reaction? Shock at first, and then the motivation to take action.
