Valpo Brings Water to Chinese Village

Students at Valparaiso University are launching an effort to bring clean water to a rural Chinese village as part of an annual effort that supports a sustainable community development project.

The University’s Social Action Leadership Team will work to educate the campus and local community about the importance of water issues to people throughout the world during “Shui 2 Go! Pipeline to the People,” its 2009 World Relief Campaign.

By the end of the spring semester, the student-led social justice ministry aims to raise at least $15,000 to fund the development and construction of a pipeline system that will bring clean water year-round to nearly 900 people living in Saihan, a village in China’s Yunnan province. SALT is partnering with Concordia Welfare and Education Foundation to carry out the project.
