WOW-Water teaches us all the value of our water.
We want to have clean water - for drinking, washing ourselves, and for cooking with.
WOW-Water is helping with clean water projects.
WOW Water brings together two continents, two cultures, and the opportunity to learn the value of water in our changing world.
If every child in our nurseries and primary schools donates a coin into a collecting bottle each time they have a drink of water, they will start to learn about the value of water and help to raise funds.
And with this money, we will team up with people in villages in Africa and other parts of the world to bring clean drinking water to their communities.
Becoming part of WOW Water is simple yet so effective.
All you need are empty plastic water bottles (used as money boxes) and a large sized empty water bottle (as a collection bottle for all donations).
There is information about life in the villages we want to help. You can ask us questions. And we will report back on how your money is being used to make a difference!
Congratulations to the Beavers in Handforth who have raised £65, and who will continue to organise a collection bi-annually with each new intake!
In Ghana, not all children are allowed to go to school by their families. That means that they may not learn to read or write, and not understand simple maths.
Sometimes they have to work, for example they may have to get up in the middle of the night and spend all day looking after the cows that their family have. These children in Ghana are called cow boys, but nothing like the ones we see on television. And when they are out in the countryside all day, often very very hot, they don't have clean water so drink from ponds.
So with the help of the Rotary Club in Leven, Scotland, we have sent some LifeStraws for them to use and to see if this makes a difference to them.
