CHOICE Humanitarian Project: Williamsburg Academy Humanities 7 Grade students have kicked off their annual humanitarian project with CHOICE Humanitarian. In class, students are learning about the cultures, challenges, and ways of life of various countries in Central and South America. With that being said, our students have chosen to help the people of Contorno Pallcoso, Bolivia build a water system to provide clean water to their families and the surrounding communities. If you would like to join our students in raising funds for their project, go to the CHOICE Humanitarian fundraising page to donate.
