New Briefs: Water Day

BATTAMBANG - "Yul Dung Ampii Tik" or "Think Water" was the theme

of the "Water Awareness Day" week-end which was held in the Victory Hotel

compound on June 26-7

Coordinated by Sawa, a Dutch water consulting agency, the project was funded by the

European Community.

Organizer Edith Aller, a Danish teacher-trainer, said the purpose of the undertaking

was to "improve public awareness about water- its collection, treatment, use

and waste- by combining four basic elements of life: health, education, technology

and culture."

Storytelling, traditional and modern music, theatre (lakhaon nyiey), and an art exhibition

vied for attention with drilling rigs, 2,000 liter rainwater jars, latrine-making,

and a solar-powered water heater.

Prior to the weekend, a school program that involved essay-writing and drawing was

conducted with seventh form students.
