Students learned about the water crisis in Sudan by reading "A Long Walk to Water" by Linda Sue Park and then partnered with the African Republic school, South Sudan School #5 to help. The goal of $300 was surpassed and more than $500.00 has been collected to complete their well water project. Water Walk participants carried 1-2 gallons of water on their long walk to raise awareness of the fact that children may spend many hours a day walking to a clean water source, sometimes leaving no time left to attend school.
