Clean water is a fundamental human need, never more so than during a days schooling. Water helps concentration, it prevents dehydration, it improves hygiene. Dehydration is a particular concern after pupils have walked long distances to reach school in the baking Ethiopian sun. Many schools in Ethiopia have no form of safe drinking water for pupils. Of the schools that do, few have facilities suitable for the number of pupils on site.
Link Ethiopia is working with school communities to develop water systems to cater more effectively for all the student population. Depending on the current conditions within a school we either develop and expand upon existing facilities or we support the exploration of entirely new water supplies.
