Fifth Grade

Making A Difference in Africa

Posted by Bev Koops, 5th grade teacher

Two years ago we had an elementary chapel about the need of people in Kenya to get water, especially clean water.  Boni Piper had come back from Kenya after helping build bases for water tanks, and she shared with us how much getting clean water drastically improved their lives.  Some of the kids were moved to help raise money for those tanks.  Two of the current 7th graders are still raising money for WEI, the organization that helps with this.  Now Agnes, a lady from Kenya who had received a tank several years ago, was in Seattle to give a speech.
