Pure Water for the World is a fantastic non-profit that is making a huge difference in the lives of people around the world. This organization provides sand filters and latrines to families and villages to help support clean drinking water. I have been teaching fourth grade in Upstate New York for the past seven years. Each year, my students have participated in a local fundraiser called The Water Walk, which raises money for Pure Water for the World. This has provided an amazing experience for my students to learn the value of giving to those who are less fortunate. They absolutely LOVE this event and even come back the following years to participate! This past summer, I was fortunate enough to take a week long trip to Honduras to volunteer with Pure Water and get a closer look at what this organization does with the money that we have donated. It was definitely an eye-opening experience for me. The videos and pictures that are online just don’t do justice the hard work and incredible difference that this organization makes! Their efforts are saving the lives of many children and adults. To learn more about what Pure Water does, visit purewaterfortheworld.org.
