Proceeding from the successful pilot project funded by the AFAS Foundation, Mpilo Foudation aims to continue the rehabilitation of boreholes. These boreholes have proven their worth in the past, precluding the need for surveys or drilling. This is not only financially advantageous, but it also allows us to evaluate projects from home, by employing qualified local contacts in Zimbabwe. With the ongoing corona pandemic, travelling to Zimbabwe to visit potential new project has been hard or even impossible. Visiting and evaluating new projects is one of our core values. In cases where only rehabilitation is required, evaluation and execution can be performed by our local contacts. With this project, it will be Belinda Malandu and Gift Sanyamahwe carrying out the work and allowing Mpilo Foundation to continue aiding the people in Zimbabwe.
This project will be phase one of a larger project. Our first goal is to rehabilitate 12 boreholes in the Umguza District, benefiting over 3,000 people. The villages in question are Galetas, Thuthukani, Twenty Ezidakeni, Majindane diptank Maraposa, Majindane village 3 Maraposa, Majindane village 4 Maraposa, Dwaleni Ematankeni, Deli village 6B Thokozani, Deli village 6A, Bhudasiyazama en Redwood village 1A.
