Walk for the Water

Visit from Mr Hudelmaier to present the World Vision project in Sierra Leone which will be supported with the money raised by our students' walk for water.

Friday 19th of May 2017

Mr. Hudelmaier from World Vision visited our school for the hand-over of the money raised by our 6km sponsored walk for water.

6 km is the average distance that people in the developing world walk to get water for their daily needs - water that is often contaminated with life-threatening diseases. 

On Saturday, May 6th, 2017, people from around the globe walked or ran 6 kilometres in order to raise money to help people in developing countries with clean water projects. Students from the ESF also participated and raised a total of 1507 €.

Mr Hudelmaier thanked our students for the donations and gave an overview of the organization World Vision and the projects they support. The money raised by our students' sponsored walk will support a project in Sierra Leone.

Mr. Hudelmaier gave a presentation about this project and how it helps local people to get clean water.

It involves:

- building pumps and wells,

- building  toilets,

- training local people to fix pumps and toilets when they break,

- teaching villagers to make filters so they can clean up river water before using it,

- educating locals about disease prevention .

World Vision employ local people in the project region to carry out the above described measures and to train the local population so that the locals learn life-skills and the project can bring lasting change that lasts even after the external support by World Vision ends. 

At the beginning of the project in Sierra Leone, thousands of young children in the project area died of diarrhoea or other water-borne diseases. People and farm-animals used the local river water as toilets. People then used the  river water for washing and cooking and even as drinking water. There were no Health Care Services nearby and there was little knowledge about preventing waterborne diseases. In such circumstances, diarrhoea often causes people, especially young children or the elderly, to die.

Although it took more time than anticipated to convince some people to change their habits and use well-water and filtered water, the project is changing the life of the people it serves. The measures are helping to prevent disease or even death every day.

A big thank you to the organisers of our schools' walk, Mrs Humphries and Mr Westman and to all the students who participated with great enthusiasm and who managed to raise an impressive amount of money to support this worthy cause.

Presentation at ECB about Teenagers and New Technologies, Trend and Risks

Please note that this summary is based on the notes taken during the presentation by Marjut Vallius.
