Information that’s not transmitted to its recipients is futile in a communication link. I have noticed that a lot of households in my community don’t have post boxes, and this in turn results in a number of letters and responses from the post office and relevant stakeholders getting lost in transition.
Primary school students who come back from school earlier are seen loitering around the streets with flying letters roaming all over which they pick up when the intended recipients are at work. I have taken it upon myself to build post boxes for my community to eradicate this problem. I would need relevant materials to build them and I can work from home. I live in a large community especially now with the recent RDP houses that have been built but I would like to pilot with at least 1584 houses in my section.
This will lead to job creation and community development, and this will also save the post office a lot on duplicate distribution costs and the community at large on getting their invoices and notices on time. This can trickle down to other communities with the same problem.
