In many countries in Africa, children are expected to bring water to school for cooking, cleaning and drinking. Collecting this water steals hours from every child’s school day.

However, making water available close to school means children can spend more time learning. Having a free and available water supply also keeps children hydrated; helping them to make the most out of each school day.

Water tanks store rainwater collected from the roof of schools. A typical school water tank can collect up to 104,000 litres of water, and they refill every rainy season. Each water tank can last over 25 years and require little maintenance. Each one provides water for generations of children.
