Energy & Water Programme

Protecting our water and energy resources is vital to the sustainability of South Africa.  Our Energy and Water Programme aims to support South African youth to develop a sustainable lifestyle through various practical projects, equipping them to be able to make a difference in their
schools and communities.

The projects are driven to create value by supporting experiential learning, adding value to the school curriculum,
and creating the link from school to community

 

PROJECTS

Clean Currents Project
This project is a collaboration between WESSA and SABMiller, implemented in rural areas in six provinces throughout South Africa.  The project aims to familiarise high school learners with renewable energy installations, which they then build at their schools and in their communities.

ROSE Foundation Used Oil Project
This project is educating learners at 60 schools in the Western Cape about the importance of responsible disposal of lubrication oil at accredited processing facilities located throughout the country, thereby addressing illegal and harmful dumping of used oil.  Schools are provided with educational resource materials and learning is encouraged through a curricula-lined thematic poster competition. The project is funded by the ROSE Foundation - a national non-profit organisation which promotes the environmentally responsible management of used vehicle oils and related waste in South Africa.
