World Water Day is an observance day that has been held on the 22nd of March every year since 1993. This year the theme is ‘Groundwater: Making the invisible visible.’ Even more valuable than gold, water is a treasure that enriches and nourishes our lives. It will take a combined effort from the global village to sustainably manage this priceless and timeless resource.
A lot has been said and even discussed on many platforms yet nothing has been done. This year’s theme is meant to draw attention and highlight the critical importance of the hidden water resource that hasn’t been fully recognized in sustainable development policy making.
To celebrate this day, we will look at the street life and activities of the youth from Soroti District in Eastern Uganda, a town famed for the rock formations in its proximity.
Good piece indeed water is life and requires much attention in making it sustainably available to all communities.
Thank you Hajj Umar for this comment. Water is indeed life, though it remains scarce for a majority, efforts towards making water accessible for all should be reinforced. Please share, like, and join the Vice Versa Global community for these stories and many more.
Thank you Hajj Umar. The United Nations General Assembly recognised accessibility to safe, affordable, clean water and sanitation services as essential human rights On 28th July 2010
Unfortunately most communities have lost their human rights as fact they lack access to safe, sufficient and affordable water, sanitation facilities which has an effect on the health and dignity of the people.
