Review for Drop in The Bucket, Los Angeles, CA, USA
As a volunteer writer, I have been helping Drop In The Bucket build water wells and sanitation systems to benefit the children of Sub-Saharan Africa. Of all the volunteer work I have done, this has been the most inspiring and rewarding. The children in this region have suffered through years of conflict and deprivation. They want to attend school so they can build a better future for themselves and their families. The lack of nearby clean water and sanitation means that they either spend part of the school day hiking and carrying heavy containers of water or, in many cases, they must remain home because of illness related to unsanitary water sources. Drop In The Bucket has helped thousands of these children by providing fresh water and sanitary toilet facilities right at their schools, enabling the kids, their families and the surrounding communities to enjoy the benefits we take for granted. The organization works directly on-site with the beneficiaries to be sure they are involved in the process at every step. Sustainability is emphasized through the establishment of local water councils and an innovative savings and loan program. These people are extremely dedicated and committed to helping the children of Africa stay healthy and realize their dreams.
