Water Works is a corporate social responsibility program that helps provide clean drinking water to impoverished communities. Combined with fun team building games that give back to your own team, this is a rewarding in or outdoor activity.
10 – 250 participants
We require an in or outdoor venue big enough for your group to play a series of games and build the systems. Ask us for suggestions!
Recommended duration is 2.5hrs (min duration = 1.5hrs, max duration = 3hrs)
Did you know that 1 billion people in the world don’t have access to clean drinking water, and this is the biggest killer of children under the age of 5? The Water Works program by Helping Hands provides simple water filtration systems to impoverished communities to give them the basic human necessity of clean drinking water. We combine the existing Water Works program with a collection of interactive, fun and hands-on team building activities to create a complete package for your team.
The event begins with an Opening Ceremony where the overall objective for the day is explained by our awesome professional actor hosts. First, teams will battle it out in a series of challenges designed around the theme of construction and innovation as we build towards the final play-off. These challenges will see the group split into smaller teams and verse each other in construction tasks, memory challenges, eating competitions, and puzzle building.
The winners of each challenge will receive points, with the top two teams making it into the final play-off which will involve both teams assembling a water filtration system. The first team who is able to build their system and filter 200mL of clean drinking water will be crowned the winners of the Water Works program. If you’d prefer all teams to build their own system and create an artwork sticker you can order additional units to your program.
Teams will also design an artwork on a large sticker that has its own unique tracking code. This sticker will be applied to a water filtration system and your team can track when your unit has reached a community. You’ll also receive a photo of the system being used by local members of the community which really allows the impact of this rewarding team building activity to hit home.
