Have you ever thought of having no water or no fresh water? Well people in Africa feel the exact same way.

My school is Wasatch Peak Academy and we are a service learning school.

We relate our science with our service learning and learn about a topic.

Then we usually have a project about that certain topic.

Our project this year is to persuade companies to donate to the water project since we are learning about the water cycle.

The Water Project is an awesome non-profit company that uses donated money to make pumps around the world for places that don’t have fresh water.

Did you know that more than 80 percent of Africa has no fresh water?

Well now you do.

You should also donate because it would help make more healthier lives and help students not get headaches or migraines.

If you are concerned and you’d like to donate, here are the steps on how to get to the website and how to donate:

1. Go to

2. Click the red “donate now” button.

3. Choose how you’d like to donate (anything helps).

4. Choose payment type and fill out some personal information.

5. Click the red “continue” button and conclude payment.

So now you know how to donate. We have also sent letters to Africa and told them we are trying our best to help them. So please donate.

– Emma Ponder, 4th grade 

Editor’s note: Emma’s fellow students all wrote letters to various local businesses in hopes of building support for the Water Project. Their teacher, Jenny Zacher, said the need for water conservation is taught school-wide but fourth graders in particular are studying the water cycle as part of their science curriculum. As indicated in Emma’s letter, students in Zacher’s class have also written letters to their peers in Africa.
