Atlas Copco USA’s Water for All organization recently donated to human rights non-profit DigDeep to support St. Michaels Association for Special Education (SMASE) in Window Rock, AZ, the only special needs school on the Navajo Reservation. The donation will help the school access clean water for daily uses including drinking, cooking and bathing.
Not having tap water makes a tough job even tougher. When I run out of bottled water in my classroom, I’m frantically running from building to building trying to get enough water to give a student her medicine. It’s very stressful.
SMASE is partnering with DigDeep, a human rights non-profit working to ensure that every American has clean, running water, to build a water treatment system that will supply safe water to sinks, toilets and showers in the school.
Through our Water for All program, we often work in communities around the globe to provide access to sanitary water, but sometimes the need is just as great in our own backyard. We’re especially passionate about this project and supporting a great cause at home.
