Diepsloot. This is a vibrant community of over 130 000 people that’s located in the Northern part of Johannesburg. It was originally established as a transit camp and grew as people moved in without proper infrastructure. With crimes totaling over 40001 reported incidents annually, it is hardly the safest place for children to grow. Disturbingly, 40% of the people in this part of town have no access to electricity, while a staggering 82% do not have water in their homes2. Imagine that. But there’s hope.
We are partnering with The Philile Foundation to raise awareness on access to power by raising R100 000. These funds will go to installing 8 solar street lights around the Diepsloot Early Childhood Development Centre. Help us create a safe haven for children when the streets get dark!
To ensure that community members of Diepsloot take full ownership of the street lights, we are offering training so they’re able to take care of them. This is how YOU will help raise awareness about clean energy and safeguard this young generation.
Make a contribution today to light up the streets of this development centre!
