Our TNPA sponsored WaterWise Instructors all teach children about the same thing – water safety. But in each area the problems are different; as are the dangers that children face.
Kenneth Gagela, our Instructor in Soweto, has build into his lesson the tragic story of a 12 years old child from Meadowlands, Zone 10, who drowned in a deep but narrow river that flows near his school.
Other problems that Kenneth teaches the children how to deal with is when they are asked by adults to catch fish and crabs or perhaps to help with a traditional ceremony by taking sacrifices into the water for payment.
When infrastructure is not kept in good condition it is often the children who are compromised. Like this bridge that connects three area’s … Mofolo, Dobsonville and Meadowlands.
