About Water Hogs

We believe that this initiative will help increase environmental awareness that go beyond local and national interests and will also expand empathy among our students and communities. Depending on our success and level of commitment that we receive from the U of T administration we hope to introduce the Water Hogs to the other U of T campuses in the near future.

Water Hogs-Goal

Millions of people face daily water challenges that impact their health and economic wellbeing. We believe that education is key to solving the world water crisis. This is not a quick fix and requires perseverance and support. Our goal is to assist established universities in Sub-Sahara Africa to educate skilled water resource professionals.
