Students at JEJ Moore Walk for Water
Approximately 200 students at JEJ Moore Middle School in Disputanta, Virginia learned about the plight of the Azawak  people and then participated in A Walk for Water. On February 16, 2016, students walked the track at school carrying one gallon of water. Some of the students walked up to 5 miles. The students took part in a 10 year tradition of A Walk for Water.
Walking with compassion

Students gathered sponsors and donations. The kids were able to raise over $3200.00 for the Azawak! This is the third year students at JEJ Moore have learned about water scarcity and completed the unit with a service learning project.   

Carrying water
The teacher, Lisa Boiteau said,  “Each year they’ve managed to increase the amount of money donated to Amman Imman with this being our best yet. I am so proud of my students they showed so much compassion for the kids in the Azawak region. Thank you for giving us the opprtunity to help others in need.”

2016 is the 10th anniversary of A Walk for Water. The first walk for the Azawak was held in 2007. Join our celebration by hosting your own event!  Learn more here
10 years of A Walk for Water, 2007 - 2016
6th grade students at Chevy Chase Elementary School in Maryland held an Empty Bowl fundraiser for Amman Imman and raised $900!  These students are part of the Middle Years Program (MYP) of the International Baccalaureate.

In conjunction with their studies of West African music, art and folk tales, the students heard Amman Imman's presentation about water scarcity in the Azawak. The stories inspired the students; they continued to talk about it after the presentation and they wanted to help. In art, the students made beautiful clay bowls that symbolized their assertion that no one should suffer from hunger or thirst. Each bowl sold for $10 each. At the assembly,  students performed a folk tale from West Africa, played djembe drums and lent their voices to West African songs, and shared a video they made with photos and student commentary about their projects.  

We are most grateful for the talent, energy and compassionate hearts of these amazing students! Thank you, CCES!

Lower elementary Montessori students at Five Oaks Academy in Simpsonville, South Carolina continued their annual tradition of hosting a holiday craft sale to benefit Amman Imman. The students enjoyed creating art with their own two hands to sell. They also enjoy purchasing each others' crafts.  Altogether Five Oaks students raised $480 for the people of the Azawak. Their donation will help us expand our health program in 2016.  Please consider making your year-end donation count towards better health treatment and education in the Azawak.

Thank you to our Heroes of Compassion at Five Oaks!
