After learning about scarce water conditions in the region and finding out that they could help Amman Imman reach clean water deep in the ground, these diligent 6 - 10 year olds went to work. They participated in an Amman-a-thon, an activity that combines athletics, math and philanthropy. For three months, they practiced running laps to build their skills and endurance.
Their hard work and dedication resulted in an accomplishment that will have a tremendous impact in saving lives in the Azawak. They raised $1,400! What an accomplishment borne out of the dedication and compassion of these young heroes!
The Amman-a-thon had an big impact on the students themselves, providing physical education and raising global awareness.

"Thanks so much for such a wonderful learning opportunity. The children, I think, have really understood what it means to be a global citizen even with 5,000 miles separating them from something they can't even imagine - having clean water."
A local paper published an article about Keystone Montessori's Amman-a-thon. It's a great article! Read it at Wicked Local or on the Wells of Love blog.
