Finding a fit between football and rainwater harvesting is thinking way outside the box. And yet this is exactly what an organization with the distinctive name PITCH_Africa has done.
PITCH_Africa is a US-based social enterprise organization that, in its own words, “focuses on promoting high-yield community-integrated
rainwater harvesting initiatives using sport as a catalyst”.
The organization is best known for the Rainwater Harvesting Street Football Stadium that sits above a school and community education centre.
