Organized by: Kelly Shiohira

THE STORY:

Imagine you send your first grader off to school, proud as can be that she's going to get the education you never had. But then, devastating news comes from the school. Your child fell into one of the schools ridiculously inadequate and dangerous "pit toilets", sometimes no more than a hole in the ground over a dug-out pit of raw sewage, and drowned before anyone could save her. Sadly, it's a more common story in South Africa than many would like to admit. Sebenzisana (Working Together) is a global community movement to provide safe, environmentally appropriate sanitation to schools, so no parent ever gets that news again. If successful, Sebenzisana will (eventually) establish itself as a local charity which works with communities to promote other aspects of equal opportunity by fostering educational exchanges and providing other crucial supports to schools and communities. But for now, toilets. Because no one should drown in a toilet.
