H2JoJo

Twelve people. 16 days. Five JoJo cans. Countless lives saved.

The H2JoJo Project, the brainchild of AHS Teacher Tara Bain, brought clean water to South African schools by providing massive containers with the capacity to hold a month’s supply of water. The fresh water could mean the difference between illness and health, life and death, for South African schoolchildren and their families.

Here, through slideshows and videos, is an inside look at the H2JoJo Project and the world they discovered:

From trash to toys

Nothing was wasted in the homeland villages. Children fashioned jump ropes from plastic bags, cars from pieces of wire, and purses from recycled goods. Photos courtesy of Tara Bain. Slideshow produced by Kaley Consford/J-Line Writer.

From dream to reality

The H2JoJo crew not only transported the water containers to villages. They also helped install the massive cans on bases that been  built before they arrived. By the end of their trip, three of the five cans were up and running. Photos courtesy of Tara Bain. Slideshow produced by Alex Lance/J-Line Writer.
