This is an international observance and an opportunity for students to learn more about water related issues, be inspired to tell others and take action to make a difference. The Island based charity, The ROTB Trust, is a charity that addresses the problem of transporting water. The Trust’s ambition is to distribute barrels into communities in East Africa to stop women and children carrying up to 20 kilos over considerable distances.
Students and staff wore blue to represent water and raised £143.15 for the charity. Our Head Girl, Kaitlyn Croxall, handed over the cheque to Adrian from the Trust.
“This generous and spontaneous gift from the students will provide 6 rotary barrels or 4 water filters and through our match funding program this will be doubled’ said Adrian, Trust CEO. "This is a gift to women and children in Kasozi, Uganda and will be delivered in days. It makes such a difference to communities where everyday is Water Day”.
