All sixth-graders at Loveland Intermediate School have just concluded an extensive project in English Language Arts class, focused on water scarcity in Africa. Involving raising funds for water wells, the project generated more than $7,000 to drill a new well in South Sudan.
The United Nations reports that water scarcity now affects every continent of the world. The burden on water resources has increased with the rapid growth of the world’s population and urban areas over the last century. Sub-Saharan Africa suffers more than most other regions in the world.
