Famine Learning a Success

Thank you to everyone who supported the Leadership TEAM’s 24 Hour Famine. The final count is not yet in, but we estimate to have tripled our $500 goal. Not only will we be able to feed nearly 4 children for an entire year, but students learned some important lessons about life in other countries and to be grateful for what we have.

Throughout the sleepover we experienced what it would be like to have the responsibility of walking long distances hauling all drinking water for your family, and how to filter water (as the water collected is often not clean). We also learned about other essential resources and how natural disasters, government and the land can dictate what your country receives. Many students chose to sleep in cardboard boxes to experience what it would be like to have to create your own shelter.
