@vpuusa is helping to transform neglected, unsafe, open spaces around communal water taps in informal settlements into vibrant, happy, open-air classrooms.
Follow the link in my bio to help us spread the word and raise $5,500 by month end to become a regular on the @globalgiving platform. This would allow us to access new donor funding networks and tools to make an even greater impact!
It's been 10 years since the release of 2008 Design Prize winner Wes Janz's book onesmallproject, which tells the stories of resilient people who transformed "leftover spaces" and scavenged materials into homes. "Squatters are the largest builders of housing in the world and they are creating the cities of tomorrow,” says Janz. #design#architecture#slums#urbandesign#informalsettlement
Distributing fruit and vegetables out of the back of a car during a visit to an informal settlement in Soweto was one of the many highlights of my first trip to South Africa. Though I was visiting (from Colorado) to attend a safety conference, thanks to Imbizo Tours (http://imbizotours.co.za), I was able to gain an understanding of how people live at different socio-economic levels through various learning excursions like this one. More than 10 years later, and now as a journalist in the auto industry, this is my favorite memory of how an automobile can be used for goodwill. What’s yours?
