Our Mission

To equip rural communities in Zambia with solar-powered water infrastructure and systems for productive use, food security, and socio-economic development.

Our Objectives

Water Infrastructure Development in Rural Communities

Our primary activity is to promote, facilitate, and provide solar-powered water infrastructure to rural and impoverished communities. This infrastructure is for agricultural production, clean drinking water, and filling animal troughs. This is for communities to be productive throughout the year and grow crops for their food security, increased income and improved livelihood.

Promotion of Agricultural Productivity and Markets

Considering that our communities already practice farming for sustenance and income, we collaborate with partners that offer smart climate agriculture, improved farming techniques, and technology such as drip irrigation becomes critical in ensuring that the infrastructure is utilized efficiently, effectively and fulfills its intended purpose.
