Medina Sunrise Rotary welcomed Kristiana Davis, a Baldwin Wallace University student from Brunswick, Ohio, who is an outstanding representative of "THIRST PROJECT" -- the world's largest youth water organization. "This is an energized youth movement, founded over 10 years ago," said Kristiana. It involves thousands of socially-conscious students who have organized to join the fight against the global water crisis.  Did you know that a billion people on the planet do not have access to safe drinking water?  The need is great. We can no longer ignore the #1 killer of children."
 
The Thirst Project is a non-profit organization and a movement of students whose aim is to bring safe drinking water to communities around the world where it is not immediately available. The organization was founded in 2008, in Los Angeles, by several college students who learned about the international water crisis and wanted to make a difference by bringing sustainable solutions. The Thirst Project raises awareness, educates and activates students. It collects money and builds wells all across the continent of Africa where villages do not have immediate drinking water.
 
 
We know that young people are THE most powerful agents for social change in the world. Students in elementary schools, high schools and colleges across America have formed a goal to provide safe, clean water and sanitation to 13 countries and growing. With your help, we can do this. With your help, we can give water. With your help, we can give LIFE! - Seth Maxwell, Founder/CEO of THIRST PROJECT.
