Walk In Their Shoes: SEENAH/GAIA Empathy Water Walk at DUCE

Inspired by A Long Walk to Water student clubs SEENAH and GAIA invited our school community to join a ‘Water Walk’ around the track at DUCE on January 30. The walk raised awareness of the millions of people without access to fresh water and to raise funds to help drill water wells in South Sudan. Funds raised on the walk will be donated directly to Salva Dut's organization, Water for South Sudan.
