As the road relay teams ran from Biabou to Marriaqua, the Young Leaders were stationed throughout the race to deliver this precious resource and keep the athletes well hydrated.

This year’s RBTT theme of Water inspired the Young Leaders to help their classmates as they performed for sports.

Did you know that 97% of the world’s water contains salt? Meaning only 3% is fresh water and of that 2% is frozen, and the rest is liquid surface water and ground water. Fresh water is a scarce commodity.

It is important to conserve water, as it helps to preserve this irreplaceable natural resource. It also reduces the strain on urban wastewater management systems (CWSA).

Here are a few tips on how to conserve water:

  • When washing dishes, don’t let the water run, fill one basin for washing and another for rinsing.
  • Wash fruits and vegetables in a pan rather than running water.
  • Teach your children to turn off faucets tightly after use.
  •  Don’t run the water when you are brushing your teeth.
  • Collect the rain water.

SJCM Young leaders will be conserving water by collecting rainwater then using it for a hydroponics garden as well as for irrigation of our farm lands.
