Water Week for Schools

Learn about and take action on water issues.

Oxfam Water Week for Schools provides opportunities for young people to learn and think critically about water issues, before taking informed and meaningful action.

Water Week can be held at any time of year, but many schools find the summer term works well. The resources have been streamlined for 2016 to enable schools to complete activities in just one or two sessions, but they retain flexibility for extension.

Any funds that are raised go towards the Oxfam's water, sanitation and hygiene promotion (WASH) projects.


We have also produced Water Week SEN.
