Makhoaseng community spring protection
ERS, together with the community of Makhoaseng, in the Sibi Traditional Authority Area, worked together to protect a spring in 5 days. This community identified the problem, teamed up and approached ERS for assistance in protecting a spring that they rely on for their water needs. Community action, teamwork, and willingness to learn are some of the traits that make this community stand out.
The women in the village united and provided cooked meals for the men who were doing the physical labour. The walk to the spring consists of a walk up a steep incline and some of the women helped the men with carrying some materials.
