Your Water Week Teachers’ Overview,  For Further information, please visit

Oxfam has delighted to let you know that your resources for Oxfam Water Week 2014 are now available. From lesson plans, assemblies and videos to campaigning activities and fundraising ideas, we've got everything you need to plan a successful Oxfam Water Week at your school this summer. You’ll find lots of great resources and ideas for getting involved on our website. And to help make things a little easier we’ve produced this handy planning guide.  

Oxfam Water Week resources follow a 'Learn, Think, Act' sequence to enable pupils to gain an in-depth understanding of water vulnerability issues around the world, and take informed, responsible and meaningful action. Our handy
Teacher's Overview outlines activities and timings. Pupils can take part in activities such as a sponsored Water Walk or a water-themed sports day to raise money to support Oxfam's water, sanitation and hygiene projects. Since 2010, Oxfam Water Week has raised almost £58,000 for Oxfam water projects in Mali, Niger and Liberia.

And through our 'Water Can Change Lives' campaigning activity pupils can influence the UK government to do more to help reduce water vulnerability around the world.
