" If you have to walk really far
to get water, you could get too tired.
If nobody has water then kids could get sick. Could
~Dylan at 3 years old, 2009
“Children for Water” began in 2009 during a classroom circle time
The children viewed photographs from the areas in Kenya
that our director, Dr. Ursula- Parrish Daniels would visit .The children noted that there were children without access
to clean drinking water and wanted to “send water to them”. We talked about various technologies for water delivery
and after discussing it, the children decided on a fundraising effort to purchase water tanks for the children in Kenya. The children decided to name their group “Children
for Water” and planned, created and implemented a carnival fundraiser event .That first fundraiser resulted in over
$300.00 which was donated to CRM and their efforts...
Since that time, “Children for Water” has raised over $3,000 in funds. …and the CDC children’s
efforts will continue as long as there are children without access to clean drinking water!
Please contact our children at firstname.lastname@example.org if you wish to contribute to their efforts.
