Recycle Team: Serrano Intermediate
Serrano students collect plastic water bottles to change lives in Uganda!
Filling a recycle trailer four times raises enough money to fund a water well in Uganda. Over the past 8 years, Serrano students along with some local businesses who have made donations, have helped install 6 water wells in Uganda, with each well serving between 500 – 1500 people.
The Ugandan people have been given new life with each well installed as they no longer have to walk for miles to reach water- dirty or clean.
The clean water is helping adults and children get healthy by decreasing the amount of typhoid and dysentery issues they suffer, and allowing them an opportunity to plant crops and farm. The students of Serrano are truly making a difference in the lives of Ugandan people, all from recycling our waste.
I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the waters to create many ripples. – Mother Teresa
