REPUBLIC OF BURUNDI – Hello All,

Off to Africa we go to film water in places that are not as rich as we are in America, especially in Northeast Ohio.

While we are away we will be:

1. Meeting the 700 students at St. Charles orphan school.
2. Walking to complete “water chores” with the children DAILY.
3. Organizing the final water committee with the school and community of 2,500 families who will directly benefit from the new water source.
4. Meeting with our in-kind local Ugandan project manager and school headmaster to work out last technical plans.
5. Teaching some classes with St Charles students, taking school portraits, and staying on school grounds to live as the students live.

THE OUTCOME IS:
A full length documentary Waking the World up to Water (connecting CLE Students to St Charles Students)
AND
A sustainable water source which will serve 2,500 families and 700 students at the orphan school
