Day One
DOWN THE
HATCH
Here's what that drinking water source looks like.
Let's compare two children.
• Emma lives in Creemore, Ontario.

• Emma will most likely spend 11.6 years in school.

• There's a 99 percent chance that Emma will learn to read and write.


• Emma has a 60 percent chance of completing a post-secondary degree or diploma.
• Kato lives in Nakulabye, Uganda

• Kato will most likely spend 3.5 years in school.


• There's a 73 percent chance that Kato will learn to read and write.


• Kato has just a 3 percent chance of finishing post-secondary education.
Why such a big difference?
access to
clean water
.

that reason revolves around
There are
many reasons,
some which are
out of our control.
But there's one
big one
,
which we
CAN

DO

something about.
Let's look at where Kato goes to school.
And now let's see where he gets his water.
For comparison's sake...
What's the perimeter
of your classroom?
Kato is
350 times
more likely to leave school permanently during his elementary years than Emma.
... and here's how the water gets transported.
Let's help Kato bring home water for his family.
Let's think about how much water we use in a day.
How is Emma's water different from Kato's?
Cholera
Diarrhea
Typhoid Fever
An experiment:
How easy is it to do well at school
when you feel sick?
First, let's play a math game as if we are all
Emma
. We all had a shower this morning, brushed our teeth, ate a good breakfast, and we're feeling healthy as we start our day at school.
Now we will play the same game as if we are all
Kato
. We walked two kilometres to get our family's water this morning, we ate porridge made with the muddy water, and now we are feeling sick to our stomach as we arrive at school.
And even when students are in school, sickness affects their concentration.
Summary:
• Kato has to walk for his water.
• Kato's odds of finishing school and attending university or college are far lower than Emma's.
• Frequent sickness = less productivity at school.
• The water he has access to causes sickness.
• He has access to much less water than Emma.

Through online and in-school fundraising
to support your challenge,
your class can raise money to install more water collection systems at schools like Kato's!
The average Ugandan uses 15 litres of water in a day.
That's 3/4 of a jerry can.
The average Canadian uses 329 litres of water in a day.
That's 16 and a half jerry cans.
The average jerry can holds 20 litres.
How many jerry cans would it take?

Brushing teeth (2 min)

Hepatitis
Leptospirosis

Parasites
Diarrhea is the world's second leading cause of death in children under 5 – 1.8 million deaths per year.
Watery bowel movements, caused by virus, bacteria, or parasites.
Every two weeks, one in four children in Uganda is affected by diarrhea.
In Uganda, Kato drinks contaminated water every day.


On Day One, you will mix up a disgusting (but safe) concoction and drink it!
DOWN THE
HATCH
Kato doesn't have a tap in his kitchen for washing dishes.

On Day Two, you will bring water from another sink in your house to do the cleaning up after dinner.
BUCKET
LUG A
Kato's family has to make the most with the water it has.

On Day Three, you will use water that you have already used for something else to wash a pair of your socks.
DOUBLE
PLAY
Kato has to regularly carry water long distances.

On Day Four, you will carry a bucket of water with you to school.
WATER
WALK
Walking for water is hard work, and at the end of the day Kato's feet are numb from the effort.

On Day Five, you will stand in a bucket of ice water for one minute.

Kato's water source is 2 kilometres from the school.
It would take Kato 13 hours and 12 minutes to collect enough water for one Canadian's daily usage!
