Water bottles to school

Sometimes very simple things are important to our children. Every day we come to school we bring in our empty water bottles with us. We are staying in a simple hotel. We do not drink the tap water nor use it to brush our teeth and so every day we have 1 or 2 empty water bottles. Many of the children at the school do not have easy access to the town water, but have to get their water from wells. This water is not always of good quality. We distribute our empty water bottles so that the children can fill the bottle up with the local town water and carry it home to use in the evenings and to drink. This way we can help to reduce the incidence of upset stomachs and increase the number of happy smiling faces at the school each morning.
