This is the Grade 3 Global Concern, with a focus explicitly on linking the ‘Blue Planet’ unit with the challenges, issues and necessity of having access to a clean and reliable water supply. The United Nations cite that 55% of the world’s population live on less than US$2 per day, 43% of the world’s population live without basic sanitation and that 30% of the world is still without access to safe water.
The Grade 3 students supports the water and sanitation project that will fund the construction and connection of a safe and reliable water supply, along with flushing toilets to a kindergarten in the Mpaka Refugee Camp, Swaziland. This project is part of the Community Service Programme at our sister college, UWC Waterford Kamhlaba.
This is the Grade 3 GC.
