Lake Chelan High School Interact Club is hosting a fundraiser to provide a well to a village in Ethiopia. Clean water is something that we have and enjoy in Lake Chelan, so CHS students want to provide that same basic right to those who currently struggle with water shortages, insecurity, long walks, and pollution.
We are raising awareness by walking around Riverwalk Park on Sunday, May 19th from noon to 2pm. There is no cost to join us on a walk around the loop. Just meet at the park shelter/restrooms around noon. We will be accepting (and very appreciative) of donations to help us reach our goal of $1000. Invite your family, friends, and co-workers to walk around Riverwalk Park on Sunday, May 19th and join the Lake Chelan High School Interact Club in our campaign to improve lives.
By 2050, at least 1 in 4 people will live where a lack of fresh water will be either chronic or recurrent.
- A recent survey of 100,000 health care facilities in developing areas found that more than 50% lack running water and soap.
- In countries dealing with conflict, children are 4 times less likely to have access to basic water services.
- 40% of the world’s population is affected by water scarcity.
Help us turn clean water on for people around the world.
What is Interact?
The Chelan High School Interact is a club for young people ages 14 -18 who want to join together to tackle the issues in their community and internationally that they care most about. The club is sponsored and supported by Lake Chelan Rotary Club. The photo below is from Spring Break for a Purpose – volunteering in Costa Rica’s National Wildlife refuge.
