Well for Africa

Dovercourt students raised over $2000 for the children at Adodom School in Kumasi Africa.

Well for Africa


In September 2012 every teacher at Dovercourt committed to focusing on water issues for one curricular unit.  A water leadership team of students was started to brainstorm ideas to raise awareness about the power of water.  They also identified Ryan’s Well as the NGO that we would work with to take action and help other. The money was used towards a well and handwashing stations at Adodom Primary School in Kumasi Africa.

  • Full Project Summary

    The Leadership held a Water Week where students read, held a mini-carnival and used book and toy sale to raise money. They also accepted donations at our Trickster performance.  They raised over $2000!

  • Information for Educators

    Having the children be the leaders was the key to their success.

  • Project Outcome

    A greater awareness of water issues among all of the students.


  • How to create projects

    Only a school site admin can set up new projects. Ask you teacher to get help in setting up a project page. Once set up you can write blog articles to support your project. 

    New Projects can be of many types: an event, a take action project, a study, or a Trickster Residency.

  • What is Trickster Theatre

    Trickster Theatre hosts weeklong residencies in Alberta schools. We help create an original show with up to 500 actors - on any theme. We provide the lights, curtains, sounds, costumes, and more!
