Teams of LifeStraw staff will visit the schools each term to see that they are used correctly and to carry out further education, as part of a robust monitoring process. During the launch week, a team of seven Jaguar Land Rover employees from the UK and South Africa participated in the distribution as part of the company’s employee volunteering programme, visiting schools across the region to gain a deep insight into the LifeStraw safe water for schools programme.
