Be Hope To Her

June 16th, 2009

WVU sophomore Aly Thompson is spending the day carrying a bucket on her head, so that women and girls in Africa won’t have to. This demonstration, called Be Hope To Her,is raising money to build wells in Kenya so people there can have easier access to clean drinking water.

Thompson and other female students at West Virginia University are luggingempty 5 gallon buckets down to the Monangahela River to collect water.

Hauling the water back up to campus lets them experience what females in Africa undertake several times a day.
