Robert runs a welding workshop along the great east road next to Shoprite of Chipata town. At his workshop Robert has trained many other local welders who today are individually established. As an entrepreneur Robert has 4 orphans that he is taking care of at his home.

At this moment he wants to expand his businesses by making rope pumps and sell to his community. Jacana believes that Robert has the potential to expand his business and serve as a role model for fellow Zambians. Therefore Jacana wants to train Robert technically on how to make rope pumps. To be able to train Robert we need your financial help. Every small amount is more than welcome.
