Water Inauguration/Ribbon Cutting Celebrations
CAROLYN: I was grateful to be a part of the celebrations. It helped me understand how much time and energy was put into the projects. I enjoyed how they celebrated with fireworks, plays, and poems. So many people came in person with their families. I loved how the inaugurations focused on giving thanks to those who contributed and celebrating what the community members achieved together.
COLSON: It surprised me how much we were honored at the ceremonies. They mentioned the youth specifically several times, and how hopeful we made them.
LAKE: I felt very honored and proud to be a part of Water1st. The part that made an impression for me was at the end of every celebration a woman from the community would break a “cantaro” (a pottery vase used to carry water) to symbolize the fact that they won’t be needed anymore.
CAROLYN: I want to encourage people in my community to have a deeper understanding of the state of our world. I think it’s important not to get too caught up in daily life and instead be intentional about who you impact and your role. Being a part of an organization is more than just fundraising. That money goes to amazing communities that deserve so much more than walking every day for unsafe water. I will never take not just water but all resources I use in daily life for granted again.
LAKE: At one of the gatherings, a girl from the local community sang for us. After, she explained how Water1st allowed her to pursue her passion, because now that she doesn’t have to walk for water anymore, she can focus more on music. Ever since I came back, I have been so much more grateful for the little things that I have. I want less and try to give a little more now.
