The main objective for Swarovski Waterschool India is to ensure sustainable water supplies while educating schoolchildren on water conservation and environmental protection. Students in grades six to eight participate in five day learning programs and have the opportunity to participate in workshops at the National Chambal Sanctuary. Swarovski Waterschool India is also working to create teams of “Young Environmental Leaders,” who would engage with communities for sustainability of the project, and to generate small-scale solutions for local water supply and sanitation facilities.
In addition to the new locations in the north of India in 2016, Swarovski Waterschool India will also begin working with two schools nearby a Swarovski factory in Pune in the south of India. Mostly the children of employees are attending these schools, so extending the program here further supports the company’s philosophy of giving back to employees.
