The WRC has created South
Africa’s first water-focused graphic novel series.
The novel, aimed at children aged 11-15, follows the adventures of the
Thirsty Three, namely Royston, Mpho and Steyn, as they uncover the value
of clean water and the role played by water science. The first
installment of the proposed series includes an introduction to the
WRC as a unique South African organization and its
function to assist government in fulfilling its mandate to providing
sustainable services to South African communities. It is envisaged that
this graphic novel series can go a long way towards sharing the South
African water story with a new generation of South Africans in a
language that they can identify with.
