Christo Van Vuuren

Environmental Scientist

Growing up as a kid in a small town, called Kirkwood, in the Eastern Cape, Christo was fascinated by the water system they had put in place. This system delivered water to all the houses in the town through a water canal. Every second day, everyone received water for their gardens, and, even more surprising, this water was free of charge.
