I am Boy Scout from Troop 370 located in Sandy Hook, CT.   I am currently working on My Eagle Project which is to send water filters down to the villages in Haiti and teach the people there how to use them.  

Currently, the villages in Haiti do not have access to clean water.  Rain water is the primary source collected in community cisterns.  However, they need to boil all the water to use it and even then illness can still occur.   The Sawyer Water filters that I hope to bring down to the villages are capable of providing a family of 4 about 10 years of clean water with proper maintenance.  

The beneficary of my Eagle Project is Mountains of Hope for Haiti.  All funds received for this project will be directly provided to this Mission program.  Mountains of Hope is a mission of the New York Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church.  It operates under the guidelines of 'Volunteers in Mission" and in partnership with the Methodist Church of Haiti. 

I would like to thank everyone very much for donating to this worthy cause to bring clean water to the people of Haiti.

Hi Everyone,

I meet with the mission team from my church that will be helping with my project. We are heading down to Haiti at the end of April. At the end of March, I will begin training the team to properly install and us the water filters.

Because the discount we have received, the project will be able to send 200 filters for Mountains of Hope for Haiti. I want to thank everyone who donated for making this project possible.

Yours in Scouting, Jack Agnew

Hi Everyone,
Things are going well with the project. I recently had the opportunity to speak to my church, Newtown United Methodist Church, as well as my Troop 370 during recent Court of Honor.

I am very thankful to Pastor Vencuss who coordinated the fund transfer with Sara Evans from Frontier Foundation and the New York Annual conference. Thank you both!

The exciting news is that the Bishop & staff are aware of this project. They are looking to also help donate to help bring clean water to the villages in Haiti.
