Smart Water for Green Schools in Ukraine


wwc 2green crossifc logo-eng-page-001In January 2013 a new project “Smart Water for Green Schools" under coordination of Green Cross International was launched in Nevgody village, Ovruch region, Zhytomyr oblast to provide the residents of  Nevgody village with the access to safe water and sanitation and increase  environmental awareness of the local photo 02communities.

There are 157 households in Nevgody village inhabited by 403 people, including 71 children aged to 17, and 8 large families. The distinctive feature of the Nevgody village is that it was founded after the accident at the Chernobyl Nuclear Plant in order to provide housing to the people evacuated from Chernobyl. Existing water treatment facilities cannot perform their initial functions. As a result, water remains of poor quality.

Through the repair and implementation of water supply system we plan to provide residents of Nevgody village with clean water and thus improve their health.

Duration of the project is seven months (from January to July 2013) and during this period it is planned to reconstruct water treatment facilities of Nevgody village and supply of households with a rehabilitated water network. The project also provides the construction of dry toilets in the communal school as well as medical consultations, educational activities and workshops for the students and inhabitants of Nevgody on water, sanitation, hygienic practices and integrated approaches of water, sanitation and livelihood.
