Working again with our associates in Zambia we have continued our work in Chanda by drilling a borehole for the school and community.

The benefits of a borehole

  • Water unlocks potential by helping kids stay healthy so they can stay in school. Poor health leads to poor productivity, sickness caused by dirty water saps people’s energy to do much of anything.
  • Relieving hunger has to begin with access to clean water. It may seem simple, but we forget that without access to a reliable source of water, food is hard to grow and even more difficult to preserve and prepare.
  • The lack of water is an often insurmountable obstacle to helping oneself. You can’t grow food, you can’t build housing, you can’t stay healthy, you can’t stay in school and you can’t keep working.
