Blue Schools Programme

Blue Schools Programme

 

In 2005, the IRHA initiated a new programme that aims to enhance the development and improvement of 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 IRHA Secretariat has taken upon itself the objective of creating a chain of schools called Blue Schools. 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
