A massive thanks to all the year 8 students who raised an incredible $2500 this year to go towards purchasing more water carts for the community in Yooren.
Over the past five years the class eight students from Salisbury High School in South Australia have been raising donations for Barefoot Initiative. Humanities teacher, Evan Polymenease has incorporated the fundraising events into the school program and has travelled to Ethiopia twice to visit Barefoot Initiatives projects.
This is a wonderful example of how Barefoot Initiative brings communities together. Barefoot Initiative works to inspire youth from all backgrounds by bringing awareness to the greater world community. With a very changing and globalising world we feel it is fundamental that tolerance, awareness and compassion are essential tools that the youth of today are able to attain.
We hope that you can all be inspired by the efforts made by these wonderful year eight students.
