Pure Thirst


Grounded in Spiritan tradition, Pure Thirst utilizes a cross-disciplinary approach, allowing its student members to collaborate with each other and Duquesne faculty "coaches". Students conduct research in their specific areas to enhance the groups understanding of global water crisis. The 2016 Project aims to engage and empower a community in the Kilimanjaro region of Tanzania to participate in the implementation and ownership of new water services while educating them about the benefits of clean water. Pure Thirst will accomplish its Tanzania Water Project through its partnership with local Tanzanian Spiritans, several Rotary Clubs, Duquesne's Division of Mission and Identity, and Duquesne's Center for Engaged Teaching and Research.
