2022 Annual Giving Splash Party

Thursday, September 15th, 2022

Since 2010, we’ve witnessed thousands of people become inspired to take action to improve water quality and access. In 2021, DLDT was hyper-focused on inspiring action, especially with our youth. Taking action to solve water issues is complex, so we make it easy to engage and build a more sustainable water future, for all.

In 2021, we created new, relevant STEM curriculum for educators to connect young people to real world problems and solutions. We offered zoom visits with schools from Uganda to Cleveland, hosted a virtual World Water Day, and have scheduled beach cleanups all summer-long. In Uganda, we’ve continued helping people access new water sources and toilets so they can survive and hopefully thrive.

We were honored to host Dr. Terri Wade-Lyles from the Cleveland Metropolitan School District as our keynote speaker at the 2021 Splash Party. Dr. Wade-Lyles spoke about DLDT’s partnership with CMSD and the importance of inspiring global citizens who are concerned for and connected to the natural world.
