Students strive to provide clean water in Africa

Student members of the Imperial Interact Club raised money and awareness for the “Water is Life” project to provide clean water for schools in Sierra Leone, Africa.

Interact, a student branch of Rotary, joins the Imperial Rotary Club in a goal to engage the community in a five-year effort to provide five water wells.

Ryelee Christensen explained the project during Friday’s Longhorn basketball games.

Currently, young African children walk five miles every day, carrying an average five gallons of water on their heads for family use. Most often, the water isn’t even clean, contributing to the death of 5,000 children every day.
