In celebration of Earth Day 2021, Project Maji and Dunecrest American School have come together to raise awareness around the global water crisis and offer students tools to create lasting change by raising AED 12,000 to provide sustainable access to safe water to Wendano Primary School in Machakos County, Kenya.
6x6 Water Warrior Challenge
In a 6-day long activation (18th-24th April) Dunecrest students will engage in 6 age-appropriate water challenges, raising 60 AED each to provide lifetime safe water access to the students at Wendano Primary School and the larger Wendano community.
Why 6? Because on average, women and children in Sub-Saharan Africa walk 6 kilometres to fetch water for their families. That is an unacceptable distance for anyone to have to cover for a sip of water.
Creating WinS (Water in School) at Wendano Primary School
Through a uniquely developed concept called WinS (Water in Schools) Project Maji situates a solar-powered water kiosk close to the school premises. A pipeline extension to an exclusive water point for school pupils is then created, which is connected to a wash basin to promote hand hygiene at the same time. Through WinS (Water in Schools), we kill two birds with one stone, not only do students get access to clean water on school premises, the larger Wendano Community also gains 24/7 safe water access.
It’s simple! If we provide a pipeline extension of safe water to the Wendano Primary School, its 600 pupils will no longer be thirsty during class. Currently, the school does not have access to a clean source of water.
Through the 6x6 Water Warrior Challenge, you can bring them clean water on school premises, end their water walk, and help them focus on their studies.
So, are you ready to be a Water Warrior? Join us now and transform lives with clean water! Don’t forget to spread the word, invite your friends, your family and your relatives to match your impact. Together, let’s change these lives forever!
