Water is Life

This poem was written by Nyondo Cheyo, a teacher at Kamaila School and was read by pupil Tisa Mawele at the welcoming ceremony in October 2007 for the Water for Kids group from England.

I can't manage life without water
All my clothes, my room, my body and my schoolbag need water.

What can we do without water?
This body of mine is made up mostly of water.

Oh what would we do without water?
Let's all care for our water
Making sure we close the tap when it is running and not in use.

Oh sweet life saving water
Water is life,
Remember water is life
Water is life
Water is life.
