Day 24
The lives of the community members, of Winterveld, has been uplifted and improved. Our efforts are sure to last, however, this is in no way the solution to ending global poverty and as a result glob al hunger. In order for such a change to take place, a lot more effort, funds and support would be needed.


Day 24
Mr I. Areff: “I am extremely proud of the ICT team. Through this project they have understood the meaning and extremity of poverty. They have also learnt to value small necessities, which they usually take for granted.”
Mr S.Singh: “The past month has passed with extreme uncertainty, regarding this project. The students had to design and implement a solution as well as compile a presentation in under a month. However, they have done a fantastic job given the limited time. Congratulations, I am proud of you! ”
Anon: “these learners have indeed made a difference in this community. They have completed a great feat. Something which was otherwise thought impossible.”

Day 17
Using both the Causes and the Effects of poverty. We have come up with a few strategies.
We would first like to create an awareness to poverty. Thereafter, we would like to teach the members of the poverty-stricken community, some skills, which would benefit them greatly, for now and for the future. We would then encourage our community members to support the efforts of these people rather than oversees companies.
During our research we found that water and the collection of it was a great difficulty. We therefore, want to try and implement simple water collection units.
