Sam commented on Our Workshop + Nike Grind = Shack Life Solutions

COOL AND USEFUL! Waste equals value! This is not only super helpful for making life better in Langa but also a beautiful chance for Nike to contribute in 'social design'. Multinationals have environmental and social responsibilities and should be an example.
Besides practical solutions in shacks, this solves money and material problems which OW needs right now! This enables the chance that OW can focus on possibilities to make life better in Langa instead of other problems! This project will stimulate the creativity in OW even more, and will bring people together regarding the importance of the problem! MOST IMPORTANT: People from Langa know what they need, it makes so much sense that they are 100% involved in this project! Nike grind + OW will empathize with the users, so it will lead to logic new insights regarding Langa innovations. For this reason, this project will not only have a useful practical outcome but will lead to more skills and knowledge!
This is a project that will benefit everyone in Langa! Keep up the good work!
