Troop 45957 spent their summer break crocheting for clean water! For their Bronze Award project, the girls worked with an international nonprofit to create yarn loops. These loops attach syringes to water buckets that are used to filter clean, drinkable water for those in need. The troop says, "We believe that access to clean water is a basic human right. We want to help prevent waterborne diseases because water is a luxury for some people."
Altogether, the girls spent over two months crocheting 1,500 loops—some created during long plane rides to visit family in India. Amazing work, Girl Scouts! 💚 Learn more about Bronze, Silver, and Gold Awards.
