・Announcement of the sponsors of the 4th Asia-Pacific Water Summit
・Announcement from the Japan Water Forum
– Darvish Yu Water Fund: the 15th project, “Water, Sanitation and Hygiene Promotion in Gyanodaya Secondary School, Nepal” is now underway!
Darvish Yu, a member of the San Diego Padres of Major League Baseball established the “Darvish Yu Water Fund” in collaboration with the Japan Water Forum in March 2007 to supply safe water to people who face lack and contamination of water in developing countries. He has contributed to the Fund by donating JPY 100,000 at every one of his winning games during the regular season since then.
The Fund subsidized 14 projects in 11 countries so far.
The project will be implemented in the target school where an existing water supply system has been deteriorated and therefore students could not establish hygiene practices and have often suffered from water-related diseases. The project is expected to improve inclusive access to water, sanitation and hygiene services as well as hygiene behaviors of students, teachers and also community members.
