Water 4 Schools



The idea for the project ‘Water 4 Schools‘, like ‘Ambiente de Teatro‘, at the water workshop in Sinai. This workshop was launched on the occasion of Academia Engelberg Foundation’s 6th Dialogue on Science in 2007.

The aim of this project was to demonstrate that by using rainwater tanks and optimizing installations, children are better able to benefit from school. In many developing countries, children waste a lot of time catering water for the school day.

Unfortunately, the project could not be realized due to funding difficulties.
