Program Overview

This school year program empowers students to use their talents and engage their networks to further the work of Water1st. We provide students with the support, resources, and inspiration they need to be strong advocates. The board is structured around three pillars: education, advocacy, and fundraising.

Meeting topics include global disparities in income and health, how the daily walk for water impacts women and girls, the importance of implementing sanitation alongside water projects, urban poverty vs. rural poverty, and community-led development.

We will continue with our virtual meeting option to include advocates from around the world. Seattle-area members are invited to attend meetings in-person. Virtual participants will attend each meeting in real-time and will be able to share ideas & comments with all live and virtual attendees. Workshops will follow an all-virtual format.

Our program: Education, Advocacy Training, Fundraising

EDUCATION. We begin with an overview of Water1st projects in Ethiopia, Honduras, and Bangladesh. Students learn about the positive outcomes of a community-led approach to global development as well as the unique complexities of extreme poverty and the challenges in each of the regions where we work.

ADVOCACY. Students learn how to be advocates for a cause; how to develop a strong voice; and how to develop a plan to impact the injustices they see in the world.

FUNDRAISING. Our culminating event is the annual Carry5 Walk for Water. Students convey their personal stories of compassion for the cause through various creative mediums, including social media, photography, graphic design, writing, video, etc. Collectively, they host the walk, rally friends, serve as volunteers, and raise money for a community water project.
