Zimbabwe has been experiencing power cuts of up to 19 hours a day. This makes living and working from home extremely trying as it disrupts the rhythms of life as people have to get up in the middle of the night to make use of the power when it is on. As Rodwell is our President, it is important that he has the means to communicate freely and for people to be able to contact him. This project is not a kneejerk response to a tough year in Zimbabwe as it has been their reality for several years and there is little evidence that this will change. Several cheaper options were considered which would not cater for the fridge or cooker (stove) however it was felt this was the most appropriate option for them.

Zimbabwe has had a series of dry spells for more than 5 years. In 2019-2020 there was a critical water crisis nationwide. Most water sources including dams, and even water tables depleted badly which led to the suspension of the Chicken and Gardening income generating projects. Having a guaranteed water supply would be hugely helpful and encouraging for all concerned.
Phase 2 is before us now. Increasing droughts mean we need to deepen the well to the original target of 70m (we stopped at 50m due funding) and the water storage capacity needs expanding.
