Corona del Mar High students raise $60000 to purchase water wells for countries in need

After a decade of fleshing out a new curriculum focused on international studies, Corona del Mar High School history teacher Laura Mayberry is seeing her passion project come to fruition.

Nearly 200 of her students enrolled in the Academy of Global Studies at CdM raised $60,000 over four years to do their part in helping end the world water crisis.

Their efforts, in collaboration with the nonprofit Thirst Project, funded four water wells for villages in need in El Salvador, Swaziland and other countries.

Mayberry said students are more than halfway done raising $12,000 for a fifth well.
