Sebastian's African Well Water Project
Sebastian Oppenheim, a High School Senior at The Ross School in East
NY, developed an incredible senior project that seeks to raise
awareness about water
issues and to build well(s) in Africa.
Through a series of
webisodes, Sebastian documents the use and abuse of water in
contemporary society and contrasts it to that of a developing nation,
such as many in Africa. He seeks to stress the importance of
potable water. The video project will culminate with a trip to
Africa to document the building of at least one well.
The final project can be seen here.

Lindsay became involved with BULA after reading the article in
Newsday published in Newsday last year. The article sparked her
interest when she realized that the gift her cousing gave her over the
holidays was jewelry purchased to support BULA. Since, Lindsay
has been an active volunteer and has worked to use her resources to
expand BULA's reach. Lindsay recently used her talent for writing
to promote BULA for Eco-Chick. Check it out here!
