Cape Town - Children in 100 schools across the Western Cape will, over the next nine days, become water savings heroes as the #SaveWater initiative carries out activations around Cape Town's water crisis.
The drive to reach school pupils is part of a bid to identify water heroes who will spread the message to #SaveWater because #EveryDropCounts.
The Department of Water and Sanitation, Operation SA and Miss Earth SA have launched a School Roadshow to promote the saving of water.
Children are being given educational worksheets. Miss Earth Ambassadors are also engaging in in-class room activities inspiring #WaterHeroes.
Leaners are also being encouraged to come up with innovate ideas.
Department of Water and Sanitation spokesperson, Sputnik Ratau, said: “It is encouraging to see the kind of reception to the partnership on water awareness amongst our children and educators.
