  • At a PITCH:AFRICA Project Introduction Event amidst the backdrop of the Port of Los Angeles, Oscar-winning Actress Charlize Theron talks about PITCH:AFRICA, via satellite link to South Africa. PITCH:AFRICA is an innovative rainwater harvesting system designed by ATOPIA RESEARCH to provide clean water on a regular basis where water is scarce or unavailable throughout Africa and other parts of the world. After several years of research and development, the system is ready for production. To illustrate the concept, a life-size model of PITCH:AFRICA was unveiled today at an event at the Port of Los Angeles attended by community and civic leaders.

    At the unveiling of PITCH:AFRICA, the Annenberg Foundation announced its plans to work with the Charlize Theron Africa Outreach Project (CTAOP). Founded by Oscar-winning actress Charlize Theron, CTAOP works to create safer and healthier communities for the children and people of South Africa. The two organizations are exploring a location in South Africa to build the first PITCH:AFRICA.

    Wallis Annenberg, chairman and president of the Annenberg Foundation comments, "After years of research on this concept, we are ready to build the first one in South Africa. We are delighted to have the Charlize Theron Africa Outreach Project help us choose a location based on their work in the region."
