Chinese Walk for Water raises $3,500 for WATSAN!

For the second year running, students at the American International School of Guangzhou, China have completed their own Walk for Water.

The students, in Grade 2 at the school, are taught by Rebecca Twitchin. She and the students, aged 7, are working on a study all about water – how we use it, how our use effects other people around the world, and how we can help people who don’t have enough water. Inspired by their studies, the students have twice completed fundraising walks in aid of WATSAN projects.

In March 2016 Rebecca and her students raised 10,000 Chinese Renminbi, or $1,500. In May 2017 they completed a second walk and raised around $2,000!

Rebecca says: “Our Grade 2 students learn about how water is vital to life on earth and it is limited to many, and we decided to take action again to do what we can for people in need.”

WATSAN is extremely grateful to Rebecca and her students for their initiative and generosity.
