SGAP Global Experience: Clean Water Crisis.


Did you know 768 million people in the world so not have access to safe water? This is roughly one in ten of the world's population.

(WHO/UNICEF Joint monitoring Programme (JMP) Report 2013 update)


Charity:Water, Green Planet Group LLC, and Blue Planet Network shared the facts about the clean water crisis with students from Chatham high school, Mt. Vernon school, and Stuart Country Day School of the Sacred Heart. Students carried 40 lbs of water through an obstacle course to simulate the 3 mile daily trek to fetch water that many a girl bore in developing countries like India and China. Then students gathered in mixed-school teams to design the best outcome for their clean water challenge. Lastly, students presented their outcomes.
