This was a great project to get behind! This spring, young Tofino local Reed Platenius has been raising money for Waves for Water, an organization that helps clean water solutions for communities on a global scale. Since then, several classes at Wickanninish Community School have taken up the cause and organized a fundraiser called “Walk a mile in their shoes”. Early in June, the kids got together to walk a mile back to their school carrying just a few litres of water to have just an idea of what it’s like for many people in the world who have to walk up to 3 hours for clean water. The kids explain it best in the video!
