Challenge

Nearly 4,000 children die every day from water related illnesses. Women and children spend hours a day collecting water, further exposing themselves to disease and taking away educational opportunities. This project will provide 250 children and their caregivers in India education on life-saving water-health and hygiene practices.

Solution

Planet Water deploys hygiene education programs alongside our water filtration systems into rural villages across the globe. Our community education program teaches children & caregivers at the same time through hands-on, interactive Water-Health & Hygiene Workshops & Mobile Community Viewing events that include content on germs, hand washing, bathing, tooth brushing, clean water collection & storage, water conservation, & multi-media content created by Sesame Workshop in support of the program.

Long-Term Impact

This project will provide 250 children and their caregivers water-health and hygiene education in a village in India that is located within a 2km radius of where a Planet Water AquaTower has previously been deployed. This will help to alleviate waterborne disease, illness, and death by teaching children and caregivers together in efforts to facilitate co-learning and reinforcement of behavior change at home about life-saving hygiene habits.
