How far would you walk to find clean drinking water?


How do the Somalia children get the clean water? People experience it in an interesting way.


To know more:

Over 2.4 million children in Somalia desperately need clean drinking water. Their lives depend on it. Water is a right, not a privilege.


Food for Thought:

  1. How far would you walk for a bottle of water? Why?

  2. In Somalia, how far are children walking for a bottle of water? Why?

  3. With water shortage in Somalia, how is the quality of life of children being affected? (Hints: material life? time management? energy?)

  4. Suggested activity for UNCIEF Club: Student can refer to the video content and organize similar event for advocacy and fund-raisingy at school (e.g. a participant will have to run around the campus for 3 laps to get a bottle of water) to raise students’ awareness for the access to clean drinking water and child rights.
