Orcutt Academy High School began fundraising for Gravity Water on October 1, 2018, striving to meet the goal of $1,500 for an overseas school in need of fresher water. Amazingly enough, Orcutt Academy raised enough money to get that fresh water over to Nhie Cu Van Elementary school in Vietnam.

 

The funds made went to the construction and installation of a freshwater tank that provides water to 142 children whose families had previously relied on stream water. Orcutt Academy High School’s name is located on the tank as well.

 

Gravity Water is a somewhat local nonprofit (if you consider Santa Cruz local) that comes up with money to provide clean water to rural communities in Nepal, Puerto Rico, and Vietnam. The mission statement for Gravity Water is about providing and harvesting rainwater storage, and filtration to developing communities that is energy free and self-sustaining. (To visit the website for Gravity Water go to gravitywater.org)

 

Orcutt Academy High School’s students have shown a charitable attitude toward making the world a better place, which has made the lives of the Nhie Cu Van Elementary School community better.
