UNICEF Ambassadors and World Water Day

Our student UNICEF Ambassadors planned and organised lessons to teach year 7 and 8 on the theme of World Water Day which is linked to the Sustainable Development Goal 6: water for all by 2030. Today, billions of people are still living without safe water despite all the work of charities such as Water Aid. Many houses, schools, workplaces, farms and factories struggle to survive and thrive due to lack of water. Many groups which are marginalised are often overlooked including children, women, refugees, indigenous peoples and disabled people. The theme of this World Water Day is to consider why some people are left behind. Our students did case studies on Liberia, Malawi and Niger and considered how so many girls are given the task of collecting water leaving them without schooling and education and also causing damage to their spines and neck by carrying water for long distances.

Well done to Thomas, Daisy, Carla, Lily, Mobarak, and Jhamayia for teaching their lesson.
