At the time of writing, Day Zero has been pushed back to July 2018. At Sonke, we’ve been supporting on-going measures to mitigate the drought and its social effects, and we are actively playing our part to assist in this crisis. Below, we detail how water and gender are inextricably linked – and we suggest practical ways we can all help to lighten the load that women are so often forced to carry.
Sonke is a South African-based non-profit organisation working throughout Africa. We believe women and men, girls and boys can work together to resist patriarchy, advocate for gender justice and achieve gender transformation.
