Realising the potential within

Happy new year Project 90 blog readers! I hope you all had a fantastic festive season. Last year Project 90 was very busy making films about all our projects.

It is nearly two years since the Project 90 team began engaging with the community of Msobomvu, located just outside of East London, in identifying ways to enhance energy and water security of the community. Two years down the line, many noticeable changes have taken place within the community.
