Transcript of PINETREE Middle School Presentation

Centennial Aquatic Conservation Team Recap - Red Cross Club at Pinetree Secondary What is
water security? GAME TIME Why should we conserve water? Conserving Water Water security:
getting large amounts of water can be very difficult in countries like Kenya
the water that people in Kenya use is also different from ours Who Are We? Who are We? True or False? 2.5 billion people in the world do not have proper access to water and sanitation How else can you help? Conserve water!
Join clubs in high school
Tell your friends about saving water
Support charities and organizations like World Vision and Free The Children! Well Project A well will provide:
a convenient water source
Clean water source
A long term water source What could be:
No more tiring journeys to get water
No more worrying about getting sick from drinking dirty water
Time to do all the other things, like going to school Water conservation:
less than 1% of the world's water is usable
conserving water is important to the world Water in Our Daily Lives Water is essential to life
Poor health, hunger and a lack of education are symptoms of the true problem... no clean water What do you think we can do to save water? Bathroom:
Turn off the tap while brushing teeth/ washing hands
Take shorter showers
Fix leaky faucets Laundry Room:
Run your clothes washer and dishwasher only when they are full. You can save up to 1,000 gallons a month Kitchen:
When washing dishes by hand, don't let the water run while rinsing. Fill one sink with wash water and the other with rinse water. Garden:
Adjust garden sprinklers so they only water plants and use only as much as needed
Get a rain barrel! Water security is the capability of a certain population to ensure that the people there continue to have access to potable (drinkable) water. Diseases Cholera
bacterial infection in the intestines
caused by contaminated food and water Trachoma
caused by dirt getting into eyes
serious cases can lead to blindness These are all world-wide problems that can be prevented by access to safe drinking water, sanitation, and good hygiene behavior. The Problem? Worldwide, one out of every 5 deaths of children under 5 is due to water-related diseases Almost two-thirds of households rely on women to get the family’s water when there is no water source in the home Over half of the developing world’s primary schools do not have access to water and sanitation facilities. Without toilets, girls typically drop out of school at puberty WHAT DOES IT MEAN? Beads:
red beads = food
blue beads = water
Black/grey beads = contamination
other beads = luxuries and resources (toys, electronics, nice clothes, etc) Paper:
everybody knew they needed red and blue beads
most people knew they needed to stay away from black/grey beads
people were given different interests Collection time:
red and blue beads were collected because they are necessities
people with few blue beads and many Black or grey beads - blindfold/armband What Does This Actually Mean? Water Security measures 2 things: 1. The amount of water available and how easy it is to get this water

2. The quality of the water available and whether it is safe to drink or not By 2025, two-thirds of the world population could be facing water security threats WATER SCARCITY Physical Scarcity Economic Scarcity You need more water than you have available There physically isn't enough water available in your country/community You are able to find clean, safe water in your country.
You don't have enough money or resources to access these water sources. "In developing countries, it is common for water collectors, usually women and girls, to have to walk several kilometers every day to fetch water. Once filled, pots and jerry cans weigh as much as 20kg (44lbs)."
-TheWaterProject.org It's much worse than that. Brown Armband: Cholera Cholera is caused by eating/drinking contaminated food/water. That's just one person with cholera.
In 2006, there were 236 896 cases in the world. -Treated harshly: collectors didn't want to touch you. -Extra luxuries (beads) were taken away from you. It results in non-stop diarrhea and vomiting.. This can completely dehydrate you and kill you Let's put that into perspective. Rogers Arena: Home of the Vancouver Canucks Can fit a maximum of 18 000 people. Guess what? There's much more. Blindfolds: Trachoma -Extra luxuries were taken away -Treated harshly; collectors stayed away from you -Blindfolds= vision becomes bad Trachoma is a bacterial infection in your eye. If it gets serious enough, it can leave you permanently blind. *8 Million people are visually impaired due to Trachoma Most cases of Trachoma can be PREVENTED by simply WASHING YOUR FACE! - Passionate about helping people in and outside of our communities - This year we are raising money to drill a well for a community in Kenya - A few of our past and ongoing projects:
Cambodia Project Fundraising
