Welcome to the WaterBridge Outreach (WBO) Spring 2015 e-newsletter
. If you have not had time, take a look now at the wide variety of books + water initiatives presented under the Projects Now
tab of our www.waterbridgeoutreach.org
We draw your attention to the three items pictured below. Read about the wonderful gesture of WBO friends and supporters, Jenny Li and Angelo Lamola. They took with them as luggage from the USA to India a huge array of books and DVDs – to the great delight of the children and teachers at the Merasi School in Rajasthan. It shows what can be done when there is generosity of heart and a “don’t take no for answer” approach.
Look too at the courageous and imaginative initiative of the Alif Laila Book Bus Society
in Lahore, Pakistan. They do excellent work, bringing young people to the books at their “bus center” and, when that is not possible, taking books to the young people in their “bus library.”
Water and sanitation are the focus of the third item. It presents the joint Save Int’l and WBO washrooms project at the Karanai elementary school in Tamil Nadu, India. This shared initiative underscores the crucial role of sanitation in making education possible.
