This Year's Project

The focus of this year's special project at the concluding Peach Cobbler Mennonite Relief Auction backs a program to bring fresh water to desert schools in Jordan.  The 'Green Schools' project restores broken and dilapidated water systems that have left many schools thirsty and demoralized in a country that ranks amongst the most water-poor nations in the world.

The refurbished pipes, fixtures, tanks and cisterns not only breath fresh life into the young student body, but also permit the planting of trees and gardens on the school grounds making their corner of the desert bloom a little.
