Safe Water School

With support from the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) and the Symphasis Foundation, Antenna has been working with the Swiss Federal Institute of Aquatic Science and Technology (EAWAG) to promote hygiene and water treatment in schools that lack clean water. The Safe Water School project covers 30 schools in Kenya, 40 in Bolivia and 35 in Haiti. Impact: 55,063 beneficiaries. Schools are the ideal entry points for raising awareness and encouraging good hygiene practices. This project includes: Educating pupils about water and health, good hygiene practices, sanitation and water treatment options; Training in two water treatment methods: chlorination using mini-WATA equipment; and solar water disinfection (SODIS); Installation of water treatment points in schools; Suitable teaching materials and manuals developed by Antenna and its partners as a means of complementing the work done by hygiene committees.
