The proposed project will be an integrated effort on improving health and nutrition awareness among children. Availability of safe drinking water, Bio sand filters and regular check-ups to monitor the health of the students. This school has already received water and sanitation facilities with the support of H2O for Life. The Thar Desert of India is one of the most challenging parts of India. Severely deficient rainfall creates a chronic drought situation in Thar trapping the region under great poverty and deprivation. Food and water shortages are very common causing poverty and malnutrition. In rural areas health and nutrition needs are often neglected and less prioritized especially for females. Lack of awareness and lack of adequate healthcare are two critical challenges in the region. Education and health facilities are limited in the desert and develop the lowest statistical data nationwide. India has a goal for 100% enrollment of children and to ensure the completion of primary and secondary education by all boys and girls under the Sustainable Development targets for 2030, guaranteeing equal access to opportunities for access to quality technical and vocational education for everyone.

Calvary Cross Junior School is located in Luwero district in the Central region of Uganda. The students have to travel 1 km to the nearest bore hole well to meet the school's water needs. In addition to the students, approximately 1,000 people use the same water source for their daily water needs, as well as sharing with neighboring schools, causing students to have to wait up to an hour for their turn to get water.
Project Proposal: New latrines and handwashing station.

Demesi Primary School is a very old school that started in 1930. It has grown slowly and steadily over the years to currently have a student population of 391. These students have a huge campus; their playing field is so big that the Mbale rugby team comes to practice in the evenings and on the weekends.The subjects taught here are English, mathematics, Kiswahili, social studies, religious studies, science, environmental activities, hygiene and nutrition, and literature.Children who attend Demesi Primary report to school by 7 am with water in their small yellow containers. They spend 30 minutes to sweep and clean up litter before morning announcements. Normal lessons begin at 8 am and last up to lunch time. Lunch is eaten at the school, an idea that birthed by the headteacher after he realized that some students don’t get fed when they’re sent home for lunch. Afternoon lessons go from 2 pm until 4 pm when they take 30 minutes for recess.But this normal schedule is often interrupted because students are removed from class and sent to fetch water from a community spring anytime the water they carried in the morning runs out.
Childhood health and well being are linked to the success they have in school. School children, who have access to clean drinking water and have adequate sanitation, increase their ability to learn as their health is not compromised by the devastating effects of water borne diseases. Good health is as essential to education as are text books. This project will provide clean water, sanitation, and hygiene education for Escuela Jose Trinidad located in Trojes, Honduras. It will have a direct impact on an estimated 20 school-aged children and their families. For years to come, the new students will have safe water to drink, a latrine to use, and hygiene lessons to learn. For students leaving school, the lessons they learned will carry with them through life. This school will be provided with a complete package of clean water, sanitation, hygiene education, teacher training and additional trainings that will cover hand washing, protecting water sources, menstrual hygiene, and personal hygiene.
