Focus on Water is a video exchange project between children (10-12 years old) from the Netherlands and Bolivia. For this project, from 2004 to 2006, children from 30 schools in the Netherlands and 30 more in Bolivia made video reportages about the role of water in their environment. They sent the films to each other. The children then communicated online about the situation in both countries via the Focus on Water website.
