As winter draws to a close and the dry summer approaches, we are still running strong with the #SmartWaterMeterChallenge at schools in the Western Cape. It gives us great pleasure to share our progress at the beginning of August.

With 311 schools equipped with the Dropula, we are rushing towards the full complement of 358 schools, and have saved a combined 131,622,225 litres of water, which is the equivalent monthly allocation of 22,000 households. This saving equates to R11 million that the schools can put to better use.

Despite the progress, we are urgently looking for more schools that can benefit from the funding provided by our sponsors and the services provided by Bridgiot. If you know of a school in the Western Cape that does not have a Dropula and may benefit from our solution, contact us at schools@bridgiot.co.za.

We would like to, once again, thank our generous sponsors for their support. For more information, and the tracking dashboard, visit www.schoolswater.co.za.

Thank you all for your sustained support and interest in this important and exciting project.

Kind regards

Thinus, on behalf of the Bridgiot team.
