Promoting community ownership
We were recently introduced to the Indwe community in the Eastern Cape by the Khulumani Support Group, a growing social movement in South Africa with deep roots in many of the country’s poorest communities.
An anonymous donor from the USA financed the purchase and delivery of 50 rollers to Indwe. Khulumani groups from the region around Indwe helped us to meet with 6 local communities.
The Khulumani facilitators did a superb job to introduce the Hippo roller to the community in their local language and to put mechanisms in place that are designed to maximise community ownership and benefit.
The excitement and enthusiasm exhibited by everyone at the handover ceremony has been very contagious and we look forward to many more handovers in association with locally organised Khulumani groups.
