Alexander II Reach Students Water Project
MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – REACH students at Alexander II are raising money to build a well in Africa so that children there can have clean water to drink.
"When my students learned about the causes and effects of water scarcity, they wanted to do something to help," gifted teacher Jennifer McMahan says, "So, we did some research and we found the water project challenge online."
The students are drinking tap water for 14 days. The money that they would have spent on other beverages, their donating it to the water project.
So far, the students have raised over seven hundred dollars. Their goal is to reach one thousand dollars to contribute to the water project in Africa.
