Because we have good hope that the few remaining coins will be donated soon, the drillers already made a pump for Chrispin:
Michael Soko, Edward Tembo and Moses Banda drilled a borehole at beekeeper Chrispin Daka. The first attempt failed, but the team did not give up and the second attempt was successful. They even made a ground water recharge system next to the borehole. The pump was made by welder George Chulu.
The Zambian economy is stabilized by several key economical players one of which is farmers. Mr Crispin Daka owns a farm that is approximately 50 acres without a reliable water source. Activities at his farm are stagnating due to water challenges. He currently has few livestock and grows field crops. At this moment, he wants to expand his honey business, at the moment he has few beehives and his plan is to have more of these beehives and increase his market network.
Having more honey beehives doesn’t cost much compared to having a borehole. In this business water is critical because live stock and bees require water. For that reason, he needs a reliable water source within his vicinity.
Upon realizing this, Mr Crispin Daka approached Jacana SMART centre and already paid a part of the required amount for his borehole, hoping that Jacana would cover up the deficit. Would you join us to support Mr Crispin Daka with any small donation towards his borehole?
Mr Daka is a retired air force officer and a father of 8 children. He owns a farm, growing field crops and running a small piggery. His major plan is to expand his honey business if water is provided.
