Piece by Piece We All Helped Bring Water To Daylight

Getting water pumping across Daylight School at the turn of a handle was a huge project!


Daylight’s water system was built by hand, piece by piece, by hundreds of dedicated volunteers and staff who decided that our kids deserved clean water.

There are so many people who made this project possible, starting with the builders who hand dug the 60-foot well.

And of course, YOU! Our partners who give what they can so that our children can have what they need.

And when you see the smiles on their faces, we know it was all worth it.
