Get involved

Use these classroom resources, created in partnership with Anglian Water and Welsh Water, to engage your pupils with issues surrounding WASH (water, sanitation and hygiene) and girls’ access to education.

A film, presentations, teacher notes, games and worksheet activities are linked to a variety of subjects and aligned to the English and Welsh curriculum.

With a focus on Nepal, activities introduce pupils to the themes of access to WASH, and its impacts on girls' education. Students will develop their key skills and understanding, within the context of international development.

Resources can be used as part of a sequence of learning, a one-off lesson, or as standalone activities.

With thanks to Anglian Water and Welsh Water for creating the lesson plans and worksheets in partnership with us.

Film: Virtual visit to Nepal

Escape the classroom and walk alongside our own staff as they visit Lahan in south-eastern Nepal, meeting students at a school that teaches children from the age of 5 all the way up to 18.

Watch the film on YouTube



Build these worksheets into your existing lessons, or use them as standalone activities. You could also use them as extension activities for the film and the three lessons above.
