The Department of water and sanitation stipulates that one can be sustained by 50L of water, now multiply that by billions of people in South Africa. Using water sparingly as taught by our young leaders means that one can use:
2L- drinking water
2 L- daily hygiene (washing of hands)
15 L-for 2 minutes shower
17L- for dishes & laundry
12 L- for flushes of toilet (less with 6L or smaller cisterns)
Young leaders stressed that by adhering to the above, you can make sure that everybody in South Africa has sufficient water. Sadly the same cannot be said by people who reside in the deep rural areas, who are still fighting for pure water and sanitation and are still subjected to share water from the rivers with livestock.
We really are learning a lot from our future leaders.
