What we do

Water Shortage South Africa was established to raise the awareness of water shortages in South Africa and to facilitate the resolution of this unsatisfactory state of affairs via multiple initiatives from grass roots to national levels.

We currently have four projects being implemented that address the causes of water shortages in South Africa:

  1. Public-Private Growth Initiative (PPGI)
  2. Independent National Water Regulator
  3. Water Lions
  4. Edupack

These initiatives address and unlock the causes of water shortages through the implementation and proliferation of the “Paradigm of Abundance” as opposed to the current very pedestrian and outdated “Paradigm of Scarcity” that limits solutions and economic growth.

We thank you for your interest in addressing our country’s water shortages and would greatly appreciate any financial support that you can afford.
