AGUA is a collaboration of the Saint Louis Rotaract and the Saint Louis University organization Billikens for Clean Water. We are a group of Saint Louis University students, both undergraduate and graduate, and faculty passionate about educating the world about the water crisis while walking in solidarity with those without access to clean water. Our mission is to strive to fight this injustice through funding water projects. We will be carrying out our upcoming project in Flint, Michigan, a town where people do not have access to clean water due to major water contamination.
Our Current Project:
In March 2016, a group of SLU volunteers composed of graduate and undergraduate students will be traveling to Flint, Michigan. We will spend one week working alongside the community members to unpackage and distribute water bottles and volunteer at the Boys and Girls Club. In addition, we will be filming a documentary to share the stories of the people in Flint and to raise awareness of this domestic water crisis. To assist in this effort, we would appreciate your consideration in giving a donation to AGUA. Donations will go towards the cost of the trip for the volunteer you are sponsoring. We thank you for taking the time to learn about our project and considering a donation to help our personal efforts to make a change to our world, one community at a time.
