Last year Kirstin Griese had the privilege to participating in the 2016 Community Plumbing Challenge as the Team Australia Design Lead. Taking place in Diepsloot – Johannesburg, South Africa, the goal of the Community Plumbing Challenge program was to demonstrate the vital role of the plumbing industry in protecting public health.
In this months Australian Plumbing Magazine Kirstin shares her experience from the Challenge providing an insight into what it is like to work with limited tools in a place where the struggle for sanitation is a part of every day life.
A life changing experience, Kirstin best sums up the impact in saying ”What we did was plant a seed. On a global level, that seed may have been small but grew and flourished into other better things.”
