Background

FOR OVER A DECADE the Water, Amenities and Sanitation Services Upgrade Program (WASSUP) has been responsible for enormous savings in water plus improvements to public health and safety impacting thousands of residents of Diepsloot Extension 1. The IWSH-WASSUP collaboration dates to 2016, during which time we have developed processes around repair and upgrade of dysfunctional public toilets and water points: outreach and education that has extended to local schools, as well as groups in neighbouring township settlements and inner-city areas. The program continues to strive for further industry collaboration, and integration with municipal authorities.
