Chilonga Community Centre

We’ve got water!

This week we installed the waterpump and solar panels. It has been a long journey, starting out with big ambitions of an off the grid centre, only to find out everybody thought we’re crazy. They may have been right: we couldn’t find local supplies, had to go to Lusaka to order the equipment and found out the supplier had gone broke. But we managed anyway, and guess what… It works!!

No more running around with barrels, paying for each drum of water and each transport to take it home. Building will be so much cheaper and easier now, and we can finally start the nursery!! Just in time, as the rains are about to disappear.
