In many of South Africa’s dense, growing metropolitan areas, thousands of people don’t have visible house numbers. This is more than an inconvenience – it’s a life and death situation as it means that emergency services often can’t locate the houses they’re called to.
While many people don't have house numbers, almost every house has a satellite dish. So Grey Design have devised a way to put the house numbers on satellite dishes, using simple, highly visible permanent decal stickers.
Paramedics and residents agree that clearly marked numbers will make a big difference as life-saving landmarks.
Through the #Satellife project, we can literally make people count.
Let’s do it.
WHAT CAN I DO?Safety in numbers
So far, we’ve implemented Satellife in one neighbourhood as a pilot project. But our dream is to take it nationwide, and really make a difference. Help us build support to get the funding to take it to people all over the country. All you have to do is Like and Share the video on Facebook or Twitter, or Instagram. It’s as easy as 1 2 3.
