A Voice for Water 

ARMOUR was formed in 2015 further to a group of concerned citizens taking action to address a major sewage spill into the Jukskei River in Johannesburg.

Determined to find out what had happened, who was responsible for the incident and how could it be resolved, a core team of volunteers was mandated to form a working group with representatives from Johannesburg Water, the City of Joburg and the Department of Water & Sanitation.


With positive results 'The Voice for Water' was subsequently 'heard' and an ongoing relationship was established as platform between civil society and those responsible for managing OUR water.

Over time a 'network of networks' has been developed which welcomes those who align with a shared vision for clean & safe waterways. Constructively challenging and co-operating with parties accountable for incidents the following approach underpins the team's success:

ARMOUR litter collecting
Is brought to cities for societies use

'Catchment to Catchment'

Action taking place

'it's not about picking up other peoples litter, fixing leaks, stopping sewage or illegal activities,
it's about awareness, knowledge transfer, subsequent behavioural change & the impact of being part of a sustainable solution'
