Project Title: Water Across the World


What the project does: Our project, “Water Across the World”, is a collaborative link between K-12 students in Muskingum, Ohio & Uganda, Africa to promote science education, water quality monitoring, and bio-conservation.  We have been working with two groups of students (Muskingum County Soil and Water Kids Conservation Camp and St. Hildegarde Primary School, Uganda, Africa) to provide hands-on science training and promote education specifically focusing on water quality.


Why we’re fundraising: We are really passionate about creating global awareness of water quality issues and we feel that by directly connecting students from Ohio and Uganda we can start to do this. Your support would help us purchase water quality monitoring equipment, create educational tools, and provide students with cameras so that they can show us what water quality means to them. Please have a look at our website to learn more and to support the project!
