Kicking off the installation of our clean water solution, Planet Water implements a school-based Water-Health & Hygiene Education program in each school we support. Our four-module, four-week program educates children on the importance of clean water as it relates to the spreading of germs, proper method of hand washing, and protecting against germs through a hands-on, activity-based program which incorporates games, drama, song and dance. All materials are delivered by trained teachers in the local language.
As the mascot for Planet Water's Water-Health & Hygiene Education program, Droplet teaches the concepts of germs and hand washing in a fun and interactive way. Droplet not only encourages children in the classroom, but he can also be found on the AquaTower to reinforce the lessons on germ protection and hand washing at the point-of-use.
As part of our Asia Water-for-Life program, sponsored by J.P. Morgan, Planet Water has partnered with Sesame Workshop to create content in support of our Water-Health & Hygiene Education program. As part of this collaboration, Elmo and his friends star in a DVD that reinforces how and when to wash your hands, along with demonstrating just how quickly germs are spread.
After Elmo and his friends spend a long day playing in the park, Elmo becomes very thirsty. Just as he starts to put his hands under the tap to get a drink of water, his friends stop him from drinking out of his hands, as they are very dirty! Once Elmo gets a hang of how and when to wash his hands, he joins his friends in singing about the important message that good health and hygiene begins with each of us... one simple practice is for us all to wash our hands!
The DVD is also accompanied by a comprehensive Teacher's Guide, which provides suggestions for teachers on how to get the most out of viewing the DVD with their students in efforts to reinforce the learning that takes place during the Water-Health & Hygiene Education program.
Our education program is designed to educate and empower children and their caregivers to create a change in behavior, beliefs, and knowledge of water-health and hygiene. (Content: Pre-school-ages and their caregivers).
A series of five workshops and mobile community-based viewings and settings facilitated by Planet Water Foundation educators.
Interactive DVD viewed at MCV events followed by additional educational activities for the children.
