Project Maji & Dubai International Academy
Partner for Water
Hello Water Warriors!
Welcome to the DIA (Dubai International Academy) special webpage to mark World Water Day on 22 March.
We have joined forces to raise awareness around the global water crisis. Did you know? 800 million people struggle to access a glass of clean water each day. We want to help you understand what life without water can feel like, help you learn more about the global water crisis and introduce you to sustainable solutions to this problem.
What are the water challenges?
We challenge you to complete 6 water challenges this week! Why 6? Because that is the average number of kilometres women and girls are walking every day to get water. 6 is also the SDG for universal access to clean drinking water. The water challenges include the ‘Water Bucket Challenge’ in which you’ll walk with a bucket of water on your head for 100 metres – trying to understand what the daily water walk for women and girls feels like. Next, you’ll be creating a TikTok video while balancing a water bucket on your heads, going vegetarian for a day and living a 20-litres water-day to catch a glimpse of water insecurity. So.. do you have a water warrior in you? Take the challenges to see if you do!
Please download printable water passports for a complete list of the water challenges.
