WAFA Youth Award

Ebomvini Primary School

South Africa

Water Explorer Program

Award Ceremony in February, 2019

Periodic droughts devastate rural areas like Godloza where Ebomvini Primary School is located. Ebomvini School staff and students have teamed up to develop innovative solutions for water usage, conservation, and recycling. They have also educated the wider community on these solutions.

Within the school the students have developed innovative approaches to recycling grey water, upcycling waste, developing a permaculture garden, designing an ec0-brick pond, and even creating ec0-brick furniture. They have been active in all phases of their projects: design, execution, maintenance, and monitoring.
