Safe Water in Our Classrooms

By Sofia Garcia | Operations Manager

It is very important to have clean water in order to obtain a healthy quality of life, and we know this at Aula Mágica, which is why we are concerned about the access that our children have in our classrooms.

Unfortunately in the communities our children live in, they do not always have access to drinking water, so common sources of obtaining water include municipal water sources, wells, and even rivers or lakes. This can be harmful for one’s health, and many of the water sources in Guatemala often do not meet the necessary requirements to be considered optimal and healthy for human consumption.

Why is it important to have water in our magical classrooms? Our children and facilitators use water for many different activities, as well as preparing snacks, washing fruits, drinking water directly and washing hands. Our nutritional drink to combat early childhood malnutrition is prepared with water, and having a safe water source is especially important to us. Our goal is to eventually have water filters in all of our classrooms.

Fortunately, the organizations “Go Philanthropic” and “Miracles in Action” have been a great help in assisting us to achieve this goal: they have provided water purification filters for our schools in Huehuetenango, Quiché, Santa Rosa and Sololá. The filters last for 10 years, and are very easy to use and easy to wash. We are deeply grateful to these organizations for providing us with this opportunity to improve the quality of water consumed by all our children and facilitators. Thank you for always thinking of us!
