Farmer, Mackson Sakala

Mackson Sakala runs a farm with pigs, chickens, peanuts, soya beans and vegetables. His farm suffered heavily from drought. Jacana helped him with the first rope pump in the area. Now the farm in Zambia has water throughout the year. Good for rearing pigs, chicken, garden and in many ways for the family to.

He has a wife and three sons and lots of grandchildren.

Jacana will support Mackson Sakala:

  1. Deepening the well to access ground water again
  2. Providing a pump
  3. Implemented a ground water recharge system to prevent the borehole from running dry in future.
