World Water Day: 22 March

Use World Water Day on 22 March to introduce your pupils to the importance of clean water, and explore why so many people are still living without.

703 million people in the world – that's almost one in ten of us – don't have clean water close to home.

Without this basic human right, whole communities are held back: children miss out on an education, people struggle to earn a decent living, and families are often ill.

Use our assembly presentation to introduce your pupils to the importance of water, learn about some of the barriers that prevent people accessing this vital resource, and explore how WaterAid works with communities to reach everyone, everywhere with clean water.
