Working with and educating young people about the importance of reducing water waste is key to creating the next generation of responsible water users. WaterAid’s schools programme Challenge: Water tasks schoolchildren with finding ways to reduce, reuse and recycle water, sharing what they learn with others in their school and local community. The recently launched education game, WaterQuest, also helps young people learn more about life without safe water and toilets. Based on life in a rural village in Madagascar, the game challenges users to find solutions to real water and sanitation issues.
