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.Excerpt from a student's performance, Thornleigh Salesian School

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.Ruth Asefaw, teacher, My Little Angels Academy

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!Phoebe, pupil, Whitley Chapel First School
The river sparkles with life.Jayden, All Saints Catholic School
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.Daniel, Corbridge Middle School
