Rural Splash

Caters for people in the rural areas that are exposed to water in the following forms:

  • Rivers
  • Lakes
  • Dams

All of the above are used on a daily basis for survival in the form of drinking, doing washing, for crossing to the next village which where the clinic or hospital is and for entertainment etc and unfortunately people are often exposed to danger as they perform any of the above. If there is too much rain then it is a struggle as people struggle to use what they use on a daily basis and in the process people drown. The rural splash programme exposes people to safety measures in their own environment while enjoying the benefits of having a river within easy access.
