THINK RAIN! All the clean, safe drinking water you need from RAIN...

How do You Communicate a Life or Death Message Cross Culture?


When we arrive at the Barina Agricultural School in Malaki, Sierra Leone in a couple of weeks, we will have ‘teaching tools’ that communicate the importance of drinking clean water and washing hands. Teachers may understand the importance of hand washing, but do not encourage the practice in students, we are told. There will be a total of 10 images with short messages that teachers can use during lessons….. perhaps the students will re-draw and color their favorite image….. or come up with their own to share with the class.

Do you have any ideas that we didn’t think of? Have you seen any effective methods of encouraging students to wash their hands? We would love to hear from you! Leave a comment or email us at
