What is your #Hack4Water
Do you have a cool, innovative idea that could help South Africa with its water challenges?
The Department of Water and Sanitation (DWS), in partnership with the Open Government Partnership South Africa (OGPSA) invite you to submit your water hack to some of the country's water and sanitation challenges.
Your hack could be a big idea, solution, commercial product, community initiative, school project, home solution, inspiring water story, app or online tool, research paper, invention, awareness campaigns, cool water-related song or dance or something we haven’t thought of.
You have a chance to win cash prizes, funding for your project, media coverage for your winning hack, tablets and more!
