Clean Water for the Dominican Republic
Organized by: Clean Water for the DR
We are a student run group from South Eugene High School participating in a 14-day community service learning program in the Dominican Republic. The organization we will be working with is called 7elements. 7elements introduces people from the developed world to human security issues in the developing world while accessing their talent, skills and resources in applying appropriate, locally-supportable technologies to reduce risks and vulnerabilities in insecure communities. While in the Dominican Republic, we will live simply in a rural community that is working on sustainability projects. The focus of our trip will be water purity. We will be distributing water filters to help combat water borne diseases due to unclean drinking water as well as helping to clean up riverbanks. This program will also give us the opportunity to experience another culture firsthand, to learn about important issues in other parts of the world, and to become more globally-aware people. We are raising money to buy as many water filters as we can so as to make the biggest impact. Thank you for your support and generous contribution towards our goals.
