JEJ Moore MS Students Walk for Water

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
