Every 20 handmade beads we make will provide access to clean water for one person. How? This school year, our handmade beads have been part of providing 16,173 people clean water in Tanzania because the Bezos Family Foundation through Students Rebuild matches beads with funding for 41 water projects that serve schools and communities. Since 20 beads = clean water for 1 person, the overall goal was to receive at least 323,460 beads. The symbol of beads for the Water Challenge because they've been used in the African culture for thousands of years. Our group made 389 paper beads that will provide clean water for nearly 20 people in Africa. We feel very proud of being part of making a difference.

I am doing a wax museum to learn about Jane Goodall. The students in my school will be given some gloves and a bag to clean up. They will have a week to clean up as many streets as they can. Everyone is also encouraged to recycle if they are able to. Thank you for making our streets and our world a better place!

Worcester's poor neighborhoods suffer disproportionate exposure to urban environmental health and social problems. We mainly work in the Main South and Piedmont neighborhoods, which have elevated exposure to health risks, particularly lead contamination. Soil contamination is an environmental justice issue, because it disproportionately impacts low-income communities of color in Worcester. According to the US census of 2010, 27% of individuals in the Worcester’s Main South neighborhood, where this community live, are below poverty level compare to 19% in the entire city. Older housing stock and the highway that cuts through the Main South neighborhood has also contributed to soil pollution by lead and other contaminants. As cities have far less green space than rural and suburban areas, it is of utter importance that what green space exists is suitable for use. We will educate, raise awareness, and take action with Worcester residents to reduce lead contamination in Main South and Piedmont area soils. We will do hands-on workshops that include soil sampling, interactive activities and distribution of Do-It-Yourself Lead Safe Yard Manuals. Specific action steps: --8 participatory workshops reaching 80 people, teaching them how to identify soil contaminants --12 youth trained as leaders in community environmental action --2 door-to-door outreach sessions alerting residents in high-risk areas of possible contamination, resources available and steps they can take to make safe yards --2 yards remediated --1 demonstration garden site --65 Do-It-Yourself Lead Safe Yard Manuals distributed
