Program Description:

Note for Cape Town Applicants Regarding Water Crisis:
Cape Town is experiencing a serious drought which has required the city to implement restrictions on the amount of water allocated to each household. The city announced the restrictions will be changed to 50 litres (approximately 13 gallons) per person per day starting 2/1/2018.  Arcadia’s staff in Cape Town has been working to ensure students will have access to sufficient water while on the program. At this time, the water crisis does not pose any significant risk to students’ health or wellness. Water tanks are being installed at Arcadia’s housing facility to manage efficient use of water supplies, and bottled water for drinking is readily available for purchase in Cape Town. Students will be required to play an active role by conserving water in various ways, as explained in this video and on the Water Conservation Flyer. Arcadia will continue to closely monitoring the situation and regularly assess and update plans when necessary to ensure students have access to sufficient water. Arcadia in Cape Town staff will discuss the water crisis at length during on-site orientation as well.
