“As a plumber I can save you a lot of drama; You know what I mean.”
– Matheus Agustinus (Campaign Creator)
With the skills I recently learned at KAYEC, I want to fix burst pipes in Havana and also help the Havana community with any other plumbing issues, hereby also involving other youth.
My campaign is for me to start fixing burst pipes in Havana and helping the community around Havana also with any other plumbing issues.
- * I will visit houses asking if they need help with plumbing
- * I will involve other young people who can help me out
- * I will also offer help to the city of Windhoek by fixing burst pipes quicker, hereby saving water
Why is plumbig an issue in Havana?In Havana, often times pipes burst and by the time the municipality arrives, it’s too late and a lot of water is lost. Some people who are already connected to water have broken taps in their houses or their showers and toilets are not working this are some effects happening around my community. Sometimes its very hard for some people to get their toilets fixed due to lack of finances. That’s why I want to offer my services to those that are in need of my help.
My background and motivation?I am 19 years old, living in Havana for the last two years. I finished grade 10 and got vocational training at KAYEC, where I was doing a certified course in “Plumbing and Pipe Fitting” for six months, from September last year (2016) until May this year (2017). After finishing the training I worked for ‘Cameroon Building and Renovations’ for two months while they were building a house, and asked me to do the plumbing work on the construction site. But my job ended when the building was complete. I now want to apply my skills in the community where I stay, and possibly become self-employed.
