The Smart Water for Green Schools (SWGS) project is the flagship on-the-ground activity for providing sustainable access to safe drinking water and sanitation to tens of thousands of people in Ghana, Bolivia and more countries in the future.
By equipping schools and communities with rainwater harvesting systems, wells and boreholes, plus providing ecological sanitation facilities, SWGS provides concrete solutions to improve the lives of people living in water poverty.
Launched in 2010, the project also works to promote the sharing of water between countries that have access to the same source, in that way reducing tensions over this increasingly scarce resource. SWGS is currently providing safe drinking water to over 40,000 people in Ghana and Bolivia.
