Because Zimbabwe’s climate is based on a wet season-dry season pattern, most people can only raise crops during the wet season. During that time they try to focus on raising corn (or maize, as they call it), because they can dry and grind the corn to enjoy the starchy staple called sadza year-round. However, this leaves families vulnerable during the dry season, and reliance on maize leads to nutritional shortfalls. By drilling boreholes (cased water wells), not only can families have access to clean water and better hygiene, they can produce vegetable crops during the dry season. To date, Noah’s FARM has provided more that a dozen functioning boreholes for communities in Central Zimbabwe. As a bonus, when we can power those boreholes with solar panels, then water is dependable and residents can even charge cell phones!
