Sustainable Cleveland 2019 Water Group leader Erin Huber is part of Making Waves from Cleveland to Uganda, a project to bring fresh drinking water to a village in Africa. It was a yearlong project of Cleveland's Carl & Louis Stokes Central Academy. This July, Central middle school teacher Teddy Mwonyonyi, a native Ugandan, will return to her homeland with local filmmaker Tom Kondilas and Huber who formed the 'Drink Local. Drink Tap.' grass-roots fresh water group after last year's sustainability summit. Their goal is to raise $25,000 to dig a well for the villagers who have to travel 4 miles each way to get fresh water every day. Read more and follow their trip blog here.
