Cindy and Brian Neprash observed the shortage or absence of clean water at Vusumzi Primary School and decided to address the need.  After researching locally accessible green technology in South Africa, the couple began collecting old record albums. They then used their creative and physical energy to design, produce, and sell whimsical, oversized flower arrangements from melted and reconfigured vinyl LPs. Just seven months later, flower sales funded a new water purification system.

The effort continues with the hope of installing another water system at a Universal Promise nursery school. If you are interested in learning more about this project or contributing to it, please contact us.

This is big. This is really big. Never again will we have to cancel classes because of a shortage of water.
