World Water Day

National Water Week was observed from 17th March to 23rd March. World Water Day is an annual event celebrated on 22nd March. It is meant to inspire people around the world to learn more about water-related issues, furthermore informing and motivating them to take action to make a difference in work areas, schools, communities and at home.

As part of Ensight’s corporate social initiatives we visited a local school to help create awareness of water pollution and water conservation.  Monica Naidoo (Communications Officer: Ensight Energy Solutions) and Londi Mchunu (Environmental Graduate Trainee: Richards Bay Minerals) visited Nhlanzini Primary School which is part of the KwaMbonambi community in Richards Bay.

The interactive session included water saving tips at home, school and within the entire local community.  The learners who are members of the Environmental Committee also recited poems on water conservation as part of their awareness campaign.  All learners participated in a Q&A session and were excited to receive prizes for answering correctly. Water conservation is everybody’s responsibility, you can make a difference. SAVE WATER TODAY!
