Water talks & Civics in school








Solidarités International is a humanitarian organisation which provides aid and assistance to victims of war or natural disaster. For 30 years the association has concentrated its action on meeting three vital needs - water, food and shelter.

Solidarités International are particularly committed to fighting water-borne diseases - the most frequent cause of death worldwide. 

Some images say more than words, don't you think? 

Education:

It's an excellent motivation to discuss humanitarian causes and volunteering as a civic value in different currivulum. 

2011 is the European Year of Volunteering. You could use my post 'Le droit à l'éducation' here to introduce the theme of young volunteering.

After watching the video 'Water talks', students could search about Solidarités International (English, French) and get more information. 

After a good discussion about volunteering, they could create a school page on jecollectepoursolidarites.org, after choosing the right action here
