A recent article in the St. Thomas Bulletin describes a Water for Peace project by Students for Justice and Peace at the University of St. Thomas. In collaboration with other student groups and departments, Students for Justice and Peace raised more than $1,400 last spring to pay for a water-filtration system that is now used by the 300 students at the Imam Redha Elementary School for Girls in Najaf, Iraq.
Water for Peace is a program of the Iraqi and American Reconciliation Project and our partner the Muslim Peacemaker Teams. It is a service-learning project that connects Iraqis and Americans in partnership to bring clean water to schools in Iraq.
