As reported by the Las Vegas Review-Journal, West Career & Technical Academy student Kristen de Guzman is working to raise $12,000 for the Thirst Project, “which will use the money to build water wells in Swaziland, where HIV/AIDS affects more than 20 percent of the nation’s 1.25 million residents.” De Guzman, who has long been involved in community projects, told the R-J, “My passion for service to others has always been inside the realm of my school or my community. I wanted to take it beyond that and go global.”
