(PRWEB) December 06, 2012
The Prospero Foundation, founded by Ulrik DeBo of DeBondo Capital, is proud to announce that a donation has been made to contribute towards the implementation of training and technologies to improve hygiene and obtain safe drinking water in 40 schools in Bolivia, one of the poorest countries in South America.
Thousands of schools in Bolivia, like most other low-income countries lack basic infrastructure for sanitation, and cannot provide clean drinking water for their staff and children. Worldwide a child dies every fifteen seconds from diarrhea, with many other illnesses being caused by such poor water conditions. These can also have an effect on the mental and physical development of the children.
This project will train teachers and students of 40 schools in Tiquipaya (Bolivia) on simple, effective methods to improve water, sanitation and hygiene conditions at school. Previously tested and developed solutions like Solar Water Disinfection (SODIS) and hand washing with soap will be implemented at the schools. Hygiene education will be integrated into school curricula. Parents will be actively involved and students will be trained to implement the solutions at home as well.
This donation from The Prospero Foundation will have an impact on the health and future well-being of many Bolivian children.
