Bringing Water, Sanitation and Hygiene Education to Schools and Communities in Need Lotika S. Paintal Jan 10, 2009

What Is the Problem…  1.1 billion people lack access to clean water 1,2 >1/6 of the world population  2.6 billion people lack access to sanitation facilities 1 >40%of the world population  4.0 billion cases of diarrhea per year 1 - 3 rd highest cause of morbidity 3  1.8 million people die annually from water-borne diseases 1 - Approximately 90% are children under five 1 1 World Health Organization 2 “Clean” water is a term used to identify water from an “improved” source, including protected wells, boreholes and piped connections. This water is not necessarily potable or “safe”, which requires testing to assure quality that meets WHO standards. 3 “Household water management: refining the dominant paradigm” Clasen and Cairncross, Tropical Medicine and International Health. February 2004 p. 187

My Experience Devoted most of my working career to international development. Lived in India, Europe, US and worked extensively with Africa and South Asia. Spent last few years understanding water related issues in the developing world with the Clinton Foundation and more recently with World Education – built up a large network and a resource base Convinced that there is a more systematic way to achieve sustainable change

Vision of Water Centric (WC) Our 10 year goal: to have served 15,000 schools and over 3 Million Children Provide an exponentially increasing number of disenfranchised schools with water, sanitation and hygiene education Enhance the experience and retention of young people (especially girls) in schools Empower children with health, dignity and pride in their environment Pass on learning to the surrounding communities and in time to future generations

Creating the Demand for Hygiene When It Is Not Initially There: From ‘Flying Toilets’ to This in a Kibera Slum School in Nairobi, Kenya

Or creating the Demand for Hygiene When It Is Not Worth Using…

 Providing access to clean water, sanitation facilities and hygiene education has been shown to reduce diarrheal episodes dramatically 1 Why we Focus on Hygiene? Reduction in diarrheal diseases morbidity 1 “Water for Life — Making it Happen” UNICEF and WHO, 2005 p. 13

Bringing Hygiene Education to the schools

So, why did I set up my own entity? To take advantage of my experiences, connections, networks and the new research and learning – rather than the usual ‘silo’ approach or being funder driven What I have learned from the process? Humbled and surprised by how many people are willing to do so much –volunteers who rock! Steep learning curve – challenges every day not related to mission (forms, legalities, international issues) Ability to be nimble That I love what I do and get immense satisfaction!
