CURRICULUM

INSPIRING KIDS TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN THEIR COMMUNITIES AND AROUND THE WORLD

Our Envision A Better World curriculums are used by schools across the Fraser Valley and Lower Mainland to help empower our youth as globally-minded citizens with power to create change.

It is made possible through the generous support and commitment of Envision Financial.

  • Multi-Disciplinary

    The materials are organized around three central themes and can be administered and adapted in different ways. Envision a Better World resources are designed in line with B.C.'s Prescribed Learning Outcomes and B.C.'s Performance Standards of Social Responsibility. Content and materials link across English Language, Arts, Social Studies, Science, and Health and Career Education.

  • Global Citizenship

    The classroom materials give students a glimpse into the lives of children in places where there is no access to clean water and it describes the process by which various agencies like Run for Water are working to respond to the global water crisis. For older grades, it discusses the importance of local empowerment and working with indigenous knowledge & skills in ensuring the sustainability of development projects. 

  • Social Responsibility

    This classroom resource guide is intended to introduce young students to the world's water resources by providing engaging and age-appropriate opportunities to learn about the importance of safe water and sanitation. The materials and resources embrace a multidisciplinary approach to learning and aim to empower young students to work towards a world without poverty, disease and injustice.

ASSEMBLY

We will send energetic and inspiring Run for Water ambassadors to your school to share stories about how your school community is transforming the lives of thousands of people by choosing to partner with rural communities to provide them with clean water and quality primary education.


This year, we are
fundraising to

GIVE A GIRL A GOAT

Clean water is key to securing health, education and economic wellbeing, especially for girls and women who carry the burden of collecting water daily for their families. 

Last year, we fundraised with the community of Meda Atsela to build a clean water system and an elementary school. Clean water is currently flowing for the first time in Meda Atsela and already transforming thousands of lives. 

This year, we are taking the next step of empowering bright young girls from rural and remote communities across Ethiopia to continue to high school. For more information about how this program works, please watch the Kibra mini-documentary below, or visit runforwater.ca/educateagirl
