Access to water is a huge issue in the community and we are doing our best to address this.
To date, five boreholes have been drilled by Vimbo in Matikwa, Munepasi, Chinyamukwakwa and Chief Garahwa’s homestead and a further three existing boreholes have been rehabilitated. In rehabilitating the existing boreholes, we have focused on assisting and training members in the community on how to maintain the boreholes themselves and provide continuous support and maintenance when required.
We have also designed and engineered an apron that drains directly into a cattle trough to ensure that there is minimal wastage of water.
We have now procured our own drilling rig which will be of great assistance in meeting the need for boreholes in the community.
