YES: Eva’s voice is being heard!
Eva is a 15 year old girl in Tanzania. She and her classmates at Mlowa school have big ambitions for their future, but without access to basic things like clean water it’s hard for them to stay in school and achieve them. This is particularly challenging for girls like Eva, who in the developing world are often denied equal access to education and are hit hardest by the effects of extreme poverty. In 2014, these young people wrote to their leaders asking for clean water at their school.
More than 124,000 people have signed Eva’s petition—click here to add your name—and it’s getting some big results.
In late February, local government officials signed Eva’s petition at a community event in Malinzanga! This is a huge step towards all of her local leaders listening and responding to her and the community. Eva and her classmates are one step closer to making sure leaders keep their promise to deliver clean water.
Eva’s goal is to get members of Parliament and the Tanzanian president to respond. Will you take action and let the Tanzanian government know that you stand in solidarity with Eva? Ask them to lead by example and make sure Eva, and young girls like her, can stay in school by investing in clean water and essential services in her community. #StandWithEva
