WATERisLIFE Partnership with Odyssey

This year the Odyssey Family of Schools is taking on a huge project by placing a water pump system in a Ghana village.  In 2011, our Junior High Spanish teacher traveled to Ghana to distribute 500 filtration straws. Since 2011 Odyssey has raised almost $25,000 to help support the water, sanitation and hygiene efforts for this village. Besides the filtration straws, we’ve created a latrine building, educated the local women in soap making skills, fenced and gated their only water source and expanded their dugout to hold their yearly water supply.
