From Heidi Smith, Communications and Outreach Manager for Rainer’s Phoenix Rising School:
“For most seventh graders, a goal might be getting better grades or having a new iPhone. Phoenix Rising alumni [and RSE student] Noah Medrud, 12, Bald Hills, is dreaming bigger: He wants to bring clean drinking water to the world.

Noah, now at Ridgeline Middle School, and his father Wayne recently traveled to India where they helped train 120 people representing 40 NGOs (non-governmental organizations) in how to build biosand water filters.

The project was a collaboration between the South Asia Pure Water Initiative and Friendly Water for the World, an Olympia-based nonprofit. In India, where one in three families struggle to put clean water on the table, their work has the potential to make a huge impact.”

None the less, I went fervently onto the field and called forth future technologies, the ability to recognize them and the courage to share them.

With in a year I was introduced to rocket mass heaters and rocket stoves. I thought, how cool is that to be able to heat and cook with up to 80% less wood and for people in developing countries to not breath the smoke that causes so much respiratory illnesses,” by Wayne Medrud.
