Community projects

We also help communities develop income generation projects and community construction projects.  These help develop vital infrastructure and solve problems that communities face.  

The Joshua Maize Mill was completed in 2013.   The construction of the Maize Mill means that the villagers no longer have to walk for over 10 kilometres to the nearest mill. In addition to employing 4 local people the mill generates a profit which is used to support orphans and old people who no longer have family members to take care of them.

The rainwater harvesting system takes water from the roof of the mill during the rainy season and has a capacity to store 30,000 litres. The rainwater storage tanks eliminate the need for up to 50 families to walk 5 kilometres find water which may be polluted.

We have also supported several villages to drill boreholes, ensuring a clean regular water supply.
