Students at Lubbock-Cooper ISD are working to bring clean water to Africa. On Friday, they launched a campaign to construct a water well.
The fundraiser is called "The Water Project" and the goal is to raise $6,400 dollars by Nov. 16.
Broke McDowell teaches 4th grade at Lubbock-Cooper North Elementary. She says this project will be a good lesson for the kids.
"We're able to teach them the difference that they can make in others lives," McDowell said. "How they can be heroes, and help them to understand how something as simple as having clean water can really save lives."
Starting next Monday, students and staff can donate $1 dollar to participate in a series of dress-up days. Fundraising class competitions will be held school-wide.
