Seventh grade Social Studies students at Lowell Middle School are looking to raise money to help build a well in South Sudan. In 7th grade, we read A Long Walk to Water, a book based on the true story of Salva Dut, a Sudanese refugee who faced unthinkable challenges in the fight to survive. He came to the US, but returned to Sudan in order to bring clean, fresh water to the people of his country. We, at Lowell Middle School were touched by Salva's story and were inspired to help. The cost of drilling a well is $15,000, but our students decided to start with a more attainable goal of $1000. Any amount will help this organization continue to bring something that every human deserves to have: clean, safe water.
