Summary

During global unprecedented times, we want to remain core to our values - "Empowering communities to make positive change" We have mobilized our teams to assist the community with additional water supplies from our Thanda water harvesting and filtration system and we are building, installing and maintaining new tippy taps in the community as we try to encourage frequent hand-washing to help prevent the spread of Covid-19.

Challenge

Only 38% of the community have access to clean water. Clean water is necessary for hand-washing, which is essential to curb the spread of Covid19. Many community members have not been adequately informed about the virus or don't understand its implications.

Solution

We have mobilized our locally hired After-school and ECD team to assist the community with education on the full extent of the virus, especially how it spreads as we are a trusted voice and support structure in the community. Further, we are building, installing and servicing new tippy taps in the community at busy hubs, as we encourage frequent hand-washing to help prevent the spread of Covid-19.

Long-Term Impact

As the only non-profit organization supporting this underserved area, we reach 1000 children and youth, as well as 400 farmers daily. We aim to play an important role in slowing the spread of Covid-19 to protect the immune-suppressed members of our community. We are eager to see our programmes back in full swing in the near future where we aim to empower the next generation of citizens with the knowledge and skills necessary to feel fulfilled and to contribute positively to their communities.
