World Water Day-22 March 2017

Spreading awareness about reducing water wastage

World Water Day is celebrated across the globe on 22nd March every year with a unique theme around tackling water crisis. Today, 1.8 billion people use a source of drinking water contaminated with faeces, putting them at risk of contracting cholera, dysentery, typhoid and polio. Providing clean drinking water to all is not only one of sustainable development goals but is also directly linked with prevention of malnutrition.

This year our field team in Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and Maharashtra celebrated World Water day by sensitizing school children and Anganwadi workers on reduction of water wastage, water conservation and importance of clean drinking water in prevention of malnutrition. During the day, children were engaged in the “Game of Goose”. All the participants were enthusiastically involved in answering questions based on access to water and sanitation. The questions were based on this year’s theme “reducing water wastage”.

It was amazing see these enthusiastic students participate in our brain teaser games

The team also organised rallies where children showed their solidarity for “Safe Water” and “Drinking Water for Everyone”.
