Eighth grade students work to spread water awareness

Students standing with a water filtration systemEighth grade students in Ms. Breheny’s Spanish class recently worked with the Rotary Club of Glens Falls, Pure Water for the World and Belouga Digital Citizens to spread water awareness.

Xenia Castellanos, a representative for Pure Water for the World from Rutland, Vermont, and María Regina Inestroza de Carias, the Central American Pure Water for the World representative, recently joined the 8th grade class to talk about their water initiatives. María joined the class live from Trojes, Honduras.

After learning 2.2 billion people do not have access to safely-managed drinking water, students began working to spreading the word to educate others about the lack of access to drinking water. Students worked with Laurie Guyon, education technologist, and Dr. Marialice B.F.X. Curran,  founder and executive director of DigCit Institute.

Students were recently awarded a certificate of donor appreciation for generously supporting the Pure Water mission to improve lives by empowering people with access to life’s most basic necessities…safe water, sanitation and hygiene education. 

Congratulations to the students!
