A giant water bottle has been used to educate youngsters about how precious a resource water is – and raised money for those for people in developing countries, to get access to clean water and sanitation.
Affinity Water’s Education Team invited students who visited their Education Centre in Bushey Heath to make a voluntary contribution to its giant water bottle.
The ‘Spill a penny, spend a pound’ initiative has raised over £700 for WaterAid this year, a charity which devotes it efforts to provide clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene to people in developing countries.
Just as importantly it has helped centre visitors grasp how much water is used in the UK compared to other parts of the world – some 141 litres per person a day compared to just 10 litres a day in countries such as Uganda – and raised awareness about the inequalities that exist with access to clean drinking water on a global scale.
Hannah Battram, Education Services Manager at Affinity Water said: “Water is a precious and finite natural resource and it is vital that we all work together both locally and globally to help manage and protect it.
“We are delighted that so many schools were excited to take part in this initiative. Helping young people understand water as a global resource, helps provide a much better understanding of water as a local resource and how everyone can work together to use it wisely.”
Affinity Water has supported WaterAid’s vision to transform lives by improving access to clean water, taps and toilets in some of the world’s poorest communities since 1981.
Sally Lambert, Water Industry Partnerships Manager at WaterAid said: “Around the world, one in ten people live without clean water close to home. Clean water is a human right, not a luxury item reserved for the lucky few. These innovative fundraising ideas by Affinity Water and support from visitors to the Education Centre are vital as we work towards a world where clean water and good sanitation are normal for everyone, everywhere.”
