Kayamandi residents make several trips a day to central rainwater collection points to gather their daily water supply using buckets, bowls and other makeshift containers.

So, we decided to pose a design challenge to students from Stellenbosch University to develop innovative concepts for the community.
The Kayamandi Township which is located 20 miles outside of Cape Town, South Africa. It’s the second oldest township in the Western Cape, and Kayamandi’s 35,000 residents largely live in informal housing and have historically had low economic and educational opportunities.
