A Water Kiosk at School is unique in its mission: to provide reliable access to clean water to schools and communities, instil valuable entrepreneurial skills in the youth and help local schools support themselves financially. Setup in a school within a community with no tap water system, it will be the main source of clean water for all households, and has the following overall benefits:
Financial: The money raised by the students is used for WASH activities in school.
Education and Capacity Development: The project increases attendance rate because the children do not need to absent themselves from school to secure water for their families. Through the running of the water kiosk, the learners gain key employment skills in running a business.
Sanitation and Health: With accessibility to clean water, sanitation facilities are improved.
Socioeconomic Opportunity: Children transport water to their own homes straight from school and this means increased safety from remote and likely dangerous places where they look for clean water.
