A commitment to solidarity in favour of access to water

Working for the health and education of children in Ethiopia

Access to clean drinking water is a major humanitarian issue for every child. As well as being kept away from water-borne diseases that can have serious consequences, children who have access to quality water to meet their primary needs have access to better living conditions overall. Health is a key factor in a child's ability to attend school.

This is why Un Enfant Par La Main develops programmes focusing on education, health and humanitarian development, with particular attention to the issue of water. It is in favour of this right to education that Capgemini's commitment and the humanitarian actions of Un Enfant Par La Main have been coordinated.

So that, more than good health, the children concerned by this programme will be inclined to learn, grow and develop fully.

Water purification to eliminate water-borne diseases

Although ORISA® purifiers are very simple to use, it is important to support local partners so that they can easily deploy these autonomous water treatment systems to the beneficiaries and children involved in this programme. This human approach is part of a local support programme with a strong desire to make access to water easier on a daily basis over the long term. ChildFund Ethiopia has carried out on-site demonstrations with local partners to help beneficiaries adopt the water filter.
