  • Slide 3 – The need All people need water to survive, but not everyone in the world has clean water to drink. 884 million people across the world do not have safe water – that’s one in eight people. ( You could invite eight students to come to the front, then give seven a bottle or glass of clean water and one a bottle or glass of dirty water. ) So water is a limited resource – and one that is not shared out evenly or fairly around the world. I n the developing world, the average person will use 10 litres of water a day for all their drinking, washing and cooking needs, while in the UK we each use an average of 50 litres a day for flushing the loo alone! Overall the average European uses about 200 litres of water a day. WaterAid is an international non governmental organisation that transforms lives by improving access to safe water, hygiene and sanitation. In this talk we will discuss why these three things are so important and how they affect people’s lives in the 26 countries where WaterAid works.
  • Slide 2 – Two hundred litres a day What did you do when you got up this morning? Brush your teeth? Have a shower? Make a cup of tea? One of the first things you did probably involved water. In the UK we are lucky to be able to take safe water for granted. We can turn on a tap and use as much as we want. On average in the UK, we each use 200 litres of water a day .
  • Slide 5 – How you can help Explain how their support is vital in helping more people like Bikash and Sandesh gain access to safe water, sanitation and hygiene. Suggestion: Provide a shopping list of what their donation could buy. For example: £17 could pay for a hygiene promotion puppet show in Burkina Faso £75 could set up a school health club in Uganda £154 could pay for one community health camp in Nepal £325 could pay for a tapstand providing water for between 220 and 300 people in Bangladesh Suggestion: You could help to fundraise for WaterAid in many different and exciting ways. You could hold a bake sale, a raffle, have a non-uniform day. WaterAid has fundraising packs which are full of great ideas!
