Call to Action

A Call to Action for WASH in Schools campaign ( www.unicef.org/wash/schools ) was launched in 2010 calling on decision makers to increase investments and on concerned stakeholders to plan and act in cooperation – so that all children go to a school with child-friendly water, sanitation and hygiene facilities.

Keeping Ugandan girls in school - fundraiser

Support the  IRC fundraiser to raise € 10,000  to ensure that 1,500 people in Uganda get sustainable access to safe water. And that the distance girls in the community have to walk to collect water will be reduced so that they can spend more time in school.

Every day, in Uganda, girls have to walk more than a kilometre carrying 20 litre containers of water on their heads. That means they miss out on school. On Sunday 12 March: IRC staff, family and friends will run The Hague's City Pier City to help change this situation. Sponsor our runners and support us in keeping the girls of Uganda in school.
