South Africa
Human rights and responsibility for the planet
Posted by Ebomvini Primary , South Africa on 2 April 2018

Term time did not wind down slowly for our intrepid Water Explorer team at Ebomvini, instead, they step it up a notch by celebrating Human Rights Day by giving thanks for the plentiful rain and celebrating our beautiful wetlands that help to store and purify water. ‘Water is key to life on earth’, regales teacher Zandile. Without access to good quality water, human rights and dignity cannot be upheld. In additional to poems, posters, songs and essays written to celebrate water on Human Rights day, they also waged a war against leaks by fixing a leaky jojo tank and the communities tap.Before fixing both the jojo and community tap,  they made it their mission to recover 250 litres from the leaky tap that would otherwise drain away.

In solidarity for the Cape Town water crisis, the children challenged themselves with the day Zero challenge living on a mere 23 x 2l = 46 litre of water for washing, bathing and cooking as well as collecting 57 litres of grey water to water their planet with. Well done Ebomvini water super stars!!
