World Water Day

World water day

World Water Day, held on 22 March every year, celebrates water and raises awareness of the 2 billion people living without access to safe water.

This resource celebrating World Water Day uses the work of WaterHarvest to show how remote communities in Rajasthan are improving their own water security. This resource could be used for an assembly to celebrate World Water Day or to deliver elements of the KS3 curriculum.

Key concepts included in the resources include:

  • the role of NGOS in providing aid through sharing technology and providing materials for projects
  • bottom-up aid – communities driving projects to improve their own lives
  • intermediate technology
  • improving water security
  • how aid can close the development gap.
