Walk for Safe Drinking Water

Members of Ladies' Leadership Program carried 5-gallon buckets of water 3.1 miles to experience what millions of women and children do every day to get safe drinking water.

The event is another example of how EID provides opportunities for our students to build character, community, and muscle.

One billion people lack access to safe drinking water

  • Unsafe water and sanitation causes 80% of the world’s sickness and disease
  • Unclean water kills more people than war each year!
  • 50% of all schools in the world don’t have clean water or adequate sanitation.

EID's Ladies' Leadership Program is advised by Jessica Frichtel.
