Walgett for Water Kids inspires others

Now the Water for Walgett Kids program has been running for a year, it seems others are also inspired to improve access to drinking water in remote communities.  The March 2015 launch of the WWK program at the Walgett school was fun and well attended.

Water chillers and dispensers will soon be installed in the schools at Boggabilla, Mungindi and Toomelah by the Poche Centre for Indigenous Health of the University of Sydney.

The Walgett team continues to monitor water usage at the Walgett school, and documents oral health data as a way of measuring the ongoing impact of the program against our baseline data.

We must give thanks to the team at Nganampa Health Council on the APY Lands in Central Australia, for providing the Walgett team with background information based on Nganampa’s many years of improving water supply, and of improving oral health on the Lands.

Fading eastern light over western NSW plains on re-entry to Sydney.  Tough visit to Nepal this time. Struggling economy, massive inflation, increasing suicide rates, fewer and fewer jobs. Small wonder the drain of young people coursing out of the country, mainly aged 18-30 years, continues to grow. On average 3-4000 per day.  Villages are emptying. Schools are closing due to falling numbers of students.  Families are breaking up, leaving the parents to grow into either a lonely retirement in Nepal or face moving to another country where they are with their kids and grandkids but without their daily neighbours and local community.  It’s great to see so many beautiful Nepalese working and helping in Australia and other countries, and seeking opportunities they can’t find in their home country but the social, structural and political fracturing back in Nepal is deepening. The next few years will be very interesting.  Namaste!!🙏🏽 🙏🏽
