Map Masters !

Our 2nd Year students have been studying inequality in developing countries in their Geography class. They found out that one of the major factors that effect developing countries is access to clean water. We decided to have a competition for the best map to show the percentage of access to clean to water in the world. The 2 nd Year students learned a lot about the link to access to clean water and the development of the country. They found out that most developing countries do not have acess to clean water through a piped household connection. The maps the 2nd years constructed clearly shows that the highest proportion of lack of access to clean water is in the continent of Africa. Well done to all our Map Masters!
