The Three Pillars of SWS

The Three Pillars of SWS

The mission of Swarovski Waterschool is to address global water challenges by empowering children with the knowledge and resources to lead change in sustainable development for present and future generations.

ACCESS TO SAFE WATER
Lack of access to clean drinking water represents one of the most significant barriers to health and development in many communities. Swarovski Waterschool works hand-in-hand with local partners to identify, establish, and implement solutions that provide clean water to local schools and communities, solving both long- and short-term water related challenges.
WATER EDUCATION
Participatory teaching and learning is key to understanding the importance of water and sanitation in the greater context of health and education for sustainable development. Swarovski Waterschool programs engage with classroom teachers to empower children between the ages of eight to fifteen with the knowledge and skills necessary to take local actions improve local environments.
SANITATION, HYGIENE AND HEALTH
Access to sanitation and hygiene education in schools promotes healthy lifeskills, improved learning, and fewer absences from school, especially for girls. Swarovski Waterschool programs work with local communities to provide sanitation facilities and improve handwashing at schools.
