On World Water Day 22nd of March 2021, Lagos Lagoon Waterkeeper commemorated with the rest of the world on the theme “valuing water”. This year, our program was targeted at ensuring, the younger generation are environmentally conscious and responsible. We had a sensitization program including a community school and a private school with a total number of 50pupils and 6teachers which covid-19 rules were strictly adhered to on social distancing and wearing of face masks.

World Water Day is an annual UN observance day, which focuses citizens’ action on the importance of fresh water and its management. The day is marked to raise awareness of about 2.2 billion people living without access to a clean water/water crisis. Human activities such as poor waste management, Open defecation, watershed areas lost to landfills, runoff due to bad drainage systems to mention a few have all contributed to a freshwater loss in the environment.

We taught the students about the importance of water to health, environment, how it can also help them do well in their academics, proper waste disposal and standing against Water pollution valuing the social, economic and cultural importance of water.

The students were taught a beautiful song to give their pledge as we launched them out as Clean Water warriors with the lyrics:

Oh Water is precious

I will protect it

And my health is precious

I will protect it

Oh water is life

I will protect it

Water means a lot to me!

 The students also pledged to pass on the knowledge to the younger ones both in the school and outside the school premises; it was very good to know we have inspired them.

Excitedly, we donated 50 water bottles to each student in a bid to tackle single-use of plastics, which is very common among the students in the area.It was evident in their feedback that they are now motivated to take positive actions to protect the water.

The school authorities thanked Lagos Lagoon Waterkeeper for bringing such initiative to their school claiming that this has increased the students’ awareness, improved sanitation and hygiene practices, hence prevention from any possible water-related diseases. They further affirm that the program World Water Day marked at the school will not end that day but they would continue to teach students on sustainable actions that will facilitate enthusiasm like Lagos Lagoon Waterkeeper has done towards conserving and valuing water, the earth’s precious resources.
