Years of reduced funding to schools in Zimbabwe mean many students no longer have viable sources of water and can’t engage in new courses designed to provide job training in agriculture. Clean water sources at these remote schools will help prevent waterborne disease and reduce student absences because of illness. The students will gain valuable farming/planting skills with the new agricultural courses. Also the wells will provide community families with clean drinking water and for watering their vegetable gardens used for growing beans, peanuts, sweet potatoes, squash and tomatoes!
