Thirst-Aid
October 4, 2009

I am a teacher at a school in the Netherlands, we have students who have learning problems. For us it is important to do something for a good couse, but it is also important for us to learn our student something about why it is so important to help others. We came in contact with two great people from the USA who spend all their time in Birma. There they have the organisation Thirst Aid. They build factories where locals make water filters. With every filter they produce, they save lives, because it means clean water to drink! We receive at our school pictures, posters, e-mails and so on and so on, and with those materials we teach our students about Birma, the problem with the drinking water and what Thirst Aid does to help the people there. Every year for the last three years we raise money around Christmas, all the students raise money, and we send it to Thirst Aid, and so we help them help others. Through the personal contact with Thist aid, this really means something to our students and teachers and it motivates us to do everything we can to help them. Last year we welcomed one of the founders of Thirst aid at our school and he thanked all the students in person! He came in to every class and showed his film and pictures he took in Birma, and our students were so proud they could help! It was really great and we promise to go on raising money for this great organisation and their great volunteers!! Elske The Netherlands
