Reaching Out to the Girl Scout Brownies

Brownies2Last night, was a very special day.  First, it was my wife (Nancy’s) birthday.  Second, Agua Viva International was pleased to present to the Brownies Troop 637.  This wonderful group of girls have been studying “WOW”, which stands for Wonders of Water.  They can earn four Brownie Badges for all of their hard work; i.e. Love Water, Share Water, Save Water, and Wonders of Water.  The Troop Leader, Christie Zemencik, asked Agua Viva to come and explain to her Troop what we have been doing in Guatemala and Ecuador to improve the water situation.  With the help of the assistant leaders, Kim and Heather, we answered about a million questions and nearly ate the entire birthday cake.

“Doesn’t drinking water from the river make you SICK ?!”, exclaimed one of the little second graders.  Why, yes, it does.  A perfect segway into our presentation.  These kids are Brownies1“bright”.

We then proceeded to demonstrate transmission of germs by the hands with our black-light experiment.  It was a lot of fun and we were very surprized how interested everyone was.
