[RAIN] WASH | Blue Schools Program
IRHA initiated in 2005, the Blue School programme that aims to improve the living conditions in schools with no access to safe water or decent sanitation facilities. The ruinous state of most of these installations does not allow even a basic level of hygiene. The aim of this programme is not only to ensure wholesome conditions within schools to improve the health and dignity of children, but also to create a setting to bring up a new generation, sensitive to environmental issues.

Other Rainwater Harvesting projects
