In addition to receiving educational materials, the students will creatively raise money for clean water projects. The school that has the greatest fundraising success will have a Water4 well named in their honor.
"Water4 has helped more than 250 thousand people gain access to clean drinking water in more than 15 countries," said Sandi Patty. "I am honored to join this amazing organization and help spread awareness. From Oklahoma to Sierra Leone, every person deserves potable water."
"Awareness starts with education, and Water4 has created the perfect tool to draw attention to the global water crisis," said Nadia Dajani. "Water4's education initiative offers hope and a solution. Join us in school or at home on March 21st!"
World Water Day is an international day of awareness declared by the United Nations that is held annually on March 22nd. Despite the 780 million people worldwide who lack access to safe drinking water, the eventual eradication of the water crisis is attainable.
Water4, Inc. is a 501(c)3 public charity in Oklahoma City, Okla., and was founded in 2008 with the mission to provide safe drinking to water to at-risk areas, and also to teach and provide employment opportunities through water well drilling and the manufacturing pumps and drilling equipment. While many organizations are helping to solve the global water crisis, few, if any, approach or execute the process of providing the clean water quite like Water4. As the Water4 strategy is implemented, indigenous people are empowered to solve water problems that not only provide clean drinking water sources but also create economic impact on communities where unemployment is as high as 80 percent.
Water4 has helped more than a quarter of a million people gain access to clean drinking water, and has active projects in 15 countries, including a new partnership with World Vision targeted to benefit more than one million people in six different countries in Africa.
