Hear the music that i make, feel my water in your hand, drink to satisfy your thirst, I feel your bottle, feel your can, i'm not the place for you to dump your waste, i'm a river, i'm a river.

The programme was very much enjoyable as it provided a way to increase awareness and the need to sustain our local rivers and world rivers in a fun and creative way.

It was a different kind of project. We don't often do collage! It made it more meaningful seeing what they were doing in Ethiopia!

To get to talk for a few minutes with the pupils in Ethiopia and see them doing the same project as us was amazing. I have a much better understanding of what life is like in Addis Ababa and what foods they eat.
