Blue Schools @IRHA

Since 2005, IRHA have implemented Blue School infrastructure in over 60 schools, in 14 countries.


 

In addition to providing rainwater-fed Water, Hygiene and Sanitation (WASH), Blue Schools promote environmental awareness through planting school gardens, reforestation, and waste management activities. This holistic approach teaches children about feedbacks between water, environmental conservation, waste management and food production.
