The strongest impact from the AECI Eco-Schools Water Education Project was importance of water sustainability education coupled with quality water provision technologies, particularly in this water- stressed region . This impacted significantly on the health and well being of vulnerable learners. Anecdotal evidence suggest there was a decrease in water borne illnesses such as diarrhea and other gastrointestinal- related issues. Learners showed an increase in understanding of the relationship between water and food, and water as the foundation of all life forms . This was demonstrated in their actions in and out of the classroom.

Phalesane also showed off their hand washing stations that was donated to the school.
