Save The Date - March 12, 2008


Save the Date -- March 12, 2008


For: The Launch of a Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) in Schools Initiative

Where: The National Geographic Society Auditorium, Washington, D.C.

When: Wednesday, March 12, 2008, 9:00am - 11:00am

Water Advocates and a growing list of non-governmental organizations, foundations, corporations, and schools will launch a Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) in Schools Initiative on Wednesday, March 12, 2008 at the National Geographic Society Auditorium in Washington D.C. While much is already being done for WASH in Schools, there is still an enormous unmet global problem - half the world's schools lack adequate water and sanitation. This initiative will focus on expanding WASH to 1,000 schools in developing countries while creating the momentum to help as many additional schools as possible worldwide. Water Advocates encourages interested corporations, foundations, organizations, and individuals to use this event as a platform to highlight their activities or to pledge their support to do more for WASH in Schools.

Doors will open at 8:30am and a half hour social will follow the event.

Media interview opportunities will be available from 11:00am - 11:30am.
