     Walking For Water is a club at Tuscarora High school teamed up with Wisdom Springs, a charitable non- profit organization.  Our mission is to provide clean immaculate water to villages in Africa.  Our task is to come up with fundraising ideas and to prepare for our annual event that  attracts thousands every year.  If you are a person with a passion to help, we encourage you to attend our meetings. We need people with a creative mind and motivation to organize events that our community will enjoy. We meet every Tuesday in Mrs. Westervelt’s room (Room 502). Everyone is welcome! 

    WALKING FOR WATER is devoted to giving the waters of life to indigenous villages in Africa. It combines village wisdom with western drilling technology and funds for education. Our goal: to reclaim the land and the rich culture it sustains. Give people the hope of clean water!
