Understanding the need for Water Aid


A bottle of dirty water: use coffee, stock cubes or gravy granules to create dirty water.
5 litres of water in bottles placed inside buckets or bags. You will need 2 – 3 sets of these depending on the size of the group.


This activity encourages young people to consider and appreciate how important water is in our daily lives and begin to reflect on how difficult our lives would be without access to safe, clean water. Our young people will build empathy with some of the world’s poorest communities who walk many miles to collect unsafe water.
