Gozo College Middle School Eco-Schools committee members have participated in their annual Walk for Water event to commemorate World Water day.
The walk took place earlier this month in Victoria. Committee members also organised a Bake Sale at school with home-made cakes, muffins, brownies, cookies and coconut balls.
The Eco-Schools/Water Explorer team at the Gozo College Middle School took seriously the global fundraiser challenge as part of the Global Water Mission, and thanks to the effort and enthusiasm by the students, a total of €930 were collected from the walk and bake sale.
The school said that this money will be used to construct water pumps in Kenya to provide clean potable water for children.This will allow them to go to school rather than walking long distances each day to find some water, water which unfortunately, is dirty and unfit for drinking.
