Safer water for all a charge led by Canadian children

Please help the Safe Drinking Water Foundation to send sponsored ... Operation Water Biology kits to teachers across Canada.

Dear editor:

Please help the Safe Drinking Water Foundation to send sponsored Operation Water Drop, Operation Water Pollution and Operation Water Biology kits to teachers across Canada.

 

Students learn much about issues and solutions surrounding drinking water quality from these educational programs, and then put their knowledge into action as they educate others in their community and take action to improve the drinking water situation in their community and other communities.

 

Currently, Canadian teachers are waiting for 1,135 Elementary Operation Water Drop, 715 High School Operation Water Drop, 355 Operation Water Pollution, and 578 Operation Water Biology kits to be sent to their schools.

This means Canadian teachers are waiting for the opportunity to educate more than 111,000 Canadian students about issues and solutions surrounding drinking water quality!

These teachers do not have the funding available to purchase kits for their students so we need funders who are willing to sponsor kits to be sent to schools.

If you would like to sponsor kits we would be more than happy to discuss with you the schools which are on the waiting list from your geographic area!

Give us a call at (306) 934-0389, e-mail info@safewater.org or visit our website (www.safewater.org) and donate today!

We are a registered Canadian charity and issue receipts for income tax purposes for all donations of $10 or more.

With an Elementary Operation Water Drop kit you can educate an entire classroom  — approximately 30 students — of Grade 4 to Grade 8 students for only $70.

These kits are immensely popular with teachers because they are so effective in educating students and in motivating them to take action to inform others and to take steps to alleviate drinking water quality issues.

I would like to wish you and your loved ones Happy Holidays and a joyous New Year.

 

Nicole M. Biederbeck, Safe Drinking Water Foundation
