Potable Clean Drinking Water Project

Why water? Your body needs water to survive. Drinking water is a human right. Diseases from dirty water kill more people every year than all forms of violence, including war. 43% of those deaths are children under five years old. Unrestricted access to potable clean water and basic sanitation can save around 16 000 thousand lives every week. In Africa alone, women spend 40 billion hours a year walking to water. Unrestricted access to potable clean water gives communities more time to grow food, earn an income, and go to school – all of which fight poverty. Clean water helps keep kids in school, especially girls. Women are responsible to access 72% of the water collected in Sub-Saharan Africa. When a community gets water, women and girls get their lives back. They start businesses, improve their homes, and take charge of their own futures. We ask your support in joining us with our first water project at the Sikhululekile Secondary School in Hammanskraal. It is common knowledge that the Hammanskraal and surrounding areas have been without clean drinkable water for years. This is due to the ageing plant at Rooiwal WasteWater Treatment Plant, discharging sludge into the Apies River, which in turn supplies water into the Temba water treatment plant.

Unfortunately, there is no light at the end of the tunnel as the Rooiwal municipality is bankrupt. In collaboration with, FOR LIFE, (they have a water purifying sachet) we will distribute 12 sachets to each child (there are 1115 kids) that will provide each home with 240 liters of clean drinking water for the month. Impacting about 4000 people. The powder in the sachet must be stirred into 20 liters of contaminated water, then left for an hour. The waste will be segmented at the bottom and the clear water can then be poured through a cloth in another container for drinking water. Ms Molekwa, one of the teachers at the school will be responsible for the distribution of the sachets on a weekly basis. After the month we will follow up with the school and the kids and report back to the sponsors.

It will cost us R46 830 to buy a month’s supply of the water sachets (1115 kids x 12 sachets each = 13 380 sachets 13 380 sachets x R3.50 per sachet = R46 830 x 12 months = R561 960 for the year. Our goal is to reach 12 Schools of more or less 1000 learners each, by July 2022 in Hammanskraal. After extensive research, this method and product proved to be the most cost effective. I confidently challenge anyone to prove otherwise.

We are extremely excited about this project as it is a big challenge and we are keen to bring hope to the Hammanskraal community, one school at a time. To financially sustain a project of this size we are already busy reaching out to contacts that I have globally.

 

We are happy to announce that we have already started the project on 9 September 2021 at the Sikhululekile Secondary school. Our sponsors, FOR LIFE, has donated enough sachets for 3 months until the end of the year.
