‘Be hope to her’

the Inland Register

(From the June 10, 2010 edition of the Inland Register)

Seventh and eighth grade students at Cataldo School, Spokane, visited the Gonzaga University campus earlier this year to participate in the “Be Hope to Her” demonstration, calling attention to the need for good quality wells for water in Africa. Buckets of water were carried in the traditional African manner on their heads from Lake Arthur to the Main Campus, just as women in parts of Africa spend most of their days doing. Due to extreme poverty and the lack of good drinking water, African women have little time for education. (IR photo courtesy of Cataldo School)
