Khoto, Pula, Nala!
Peace, Rain, Prosperity! This national motto of Lesotho and greeting used by the Basotho is an appropriate way to welcome you, our visitors, to the Water in Africa Web site. It reflects the deep connection of water to all aspects of life in African countries-a concept World Wise Schools has tried to capture in the resources and learning units featured on this site.
Funded through a grant from the Department of Education, the Water in Africa project was realized over a two year period by a team of Peace Corps Volunteers, World Wise Schools’ (WWS) classroom teachers, and WWS staff members. Inspired by an idea of one creative WWS teacher, the project eventually expanded into a detailed design. The development and implementation of the design included the collection of resources from over 90 Volunteers serving in African countries, the preparation of those photos and stories, and the creation of standards-based learning units for K-12 students.
