Goal: 10x Hippo Rollers

The Water for Dignity project in the Eastern Cape, South Africa presently involves five young water activists in Makana Municipality who are piloting solutions to the water challenges in Grahamstown’s townships.

Key targets of the project are:

  • to establish a system of community-owned and monitored water storage tanks in line with the campaign, One Street, One Tank and
  • to ensure that every township school has one working toilet and a wash station for hand washing.

The project is a partnership between Khulumani Support Group and the Institute for Water Research at Rhodes University. It comes out of the realisation by the Water Research Commission that the problems with water access, quality and treatment, will not be solved in isolation of participation by the community.
