Students at many Lakehead Public Schools secondary schools will be walking for water on Friday, April 27. The students will be participating in the We Schools We Walk for Water campaign as they raise awareness and funds for clean water.
“Every day, girls must walk for miles in developing countries to collect water for their families,” says Lahama Naeem, Student Trustee, Lakehead District School Board. “With access to fresh and clean water, girls can go to school, parents can run sustainable farms and families can break the cycle of poverty.”
