Water and Sanitation Hygiene (WASH) Target Challenge in Trinidad

The SSW Operations Team in Trinidad recently stepped up to support the local Point Fortin Rotary to assist them in meeting the Water and Sanitation Hygiene (WASH) Target Challenge.  The WASH in Schools Target Challenge is a pilot program created to motivate Rotary clubs to develop sustainable water, sanitation, hygiene (collectively referred to as WASH), and education projects using the expertise and resources available through two of Rotary's areas of focus: basic education and literacy and water and sanitation. Rotary was tasked with taking effective hygiene & water conservation educational programming into the local schools, that not only encourages the formation of proper habits but that also promotes changes in behavior.  Seven Seas Water was asked to participate by sharing our knowledge of water, sanitation and conservation to help children fully understand and have the ability to make good hygiene and water conservation choices.  The team stepped up by creating an interactive story book that was presented to the students.  Several games were created to reinforce lessons taught in the presentation, and coloring books and bookmarks were provided as take-home materials for students to share in the household.
