Dear teachers and parents, and above all, dear girls and boys,
I believe that we, elders cannot be proud to leave you a world with so much injustice, poverty, pollution and violence. However, I am sure that you will know how to build a world much better. Water is the blue soul of life and human rights are the soul of human solidarity. That is why on the World Toilet Day, 19 November 2020, I encourage you to participate in the campaign "Color my Human Rights to Water and Sanitation" for World Water Day, on 22 March 2020. We leave you a world in BLACK AND WHITE, but I am sure that you will give it color and life. I am sure that you will be able to imagine and create that world that IS POSSIBLE because IT IS NECESSARY: YOUR WORLD.
