Water is one of the precious natural resources in the world. It has a great significance for both living and non-living things. Unfortunately, it is becoming a hot potato among countries due to its scarcity. Thespianz is giving awareness among all people, especially in children and youth to safe water from performing arts Campaigns. Thespianz.org empowers people around the awareness of the world with access to safe water and sanitation. We do this by helping people access awareness campaigns through performing arts and puppetry, workshops that aware them to instantly safe and care household usage of water in kitchens and toilets. When given an opportunity to aware and educate for water and sanitation improvements with awareness campaigns in public and door to door, families opt to understand long-term precaution versus struggle day-to-day to find the next liter of water. Thespianz.org has helped change the lives of more than 1.2 million people educate to safe water and sanitation

Most of the infection diseases among children are caused due to lack cleanliness and malnutrition. Promoting good health and nutrition before and during the school age is essential to effective growth and development. Through our performances we guide them towards healthy lifestyle by taking certain preventive steps in their day to day life.

Five powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

What is the organization aiming to accomplish?

Thespianz has a huge experience in giving awareness about many social issues of the world. Thespianz would like to achieve the target to save the drinking water on maximum level.

1- To create a strong script on Water Management. 2- To perform the Theatre/Puppet plays in the Rural/Urban Areas. 3- Strong Monitoring and Evaluation.

Thespianz has a long history to work on Social Issues. Thespianz creates strong social campgins and achove the goasl.

One of the major barriers to safe water and sanitation is no awareness in Children and youth. They use water almost every hour of the day and waste a lot. Thespianz Foundation addresses this barrier head-on by helping bring small, easy ways by performing arts and workshop campaigns by utilizing expert resources to safe household water and toilet a reality.

Today, 844 million people – 1 in 9 - lack access to safe water and 2.3 billion people - one in three - lack access to improved sanitation. Women and girls are often responsible for collecting water for their family. This is time not spent working, caring for family members, or attending school. Water, sanitation, and hygiene-related disease kill nearly one million people each year, and every 90 seconds a child dies from a water-related disease. Thespianz Foundation has solutions to change this. We empower people by helping them educate about the care of water that enables them to safe household water in kitchens and toilets. When a family can safe own water and sanitation resources, they are empowered to solve their water crisis.
