Jakalasi Primary has always been extremely proud of their veggie garden, and are so very grateful that they have easily accessible water again for their crops. The school Principal stated that “with the borehole back on track, we will work on the garden immensely so that we are able to have vegetables for learners once schools open again”.
Due to COVID-19, schools are still unsure when they will be opening, but want to ensure that when they do, they are able to feed children at least one meal a day. Due to the severe impact that the coronavirus has had on livelihoods, food security is going to be a significant challenge for the foreseeable future.
Water plays a key role in agriculture, so having a borehole greatly helps in the success of vegetable gardens, and allows communities to take responsibility for providing students with nutrition.
Wilderness Safaris and CITW are extremely grateful to the Rotary Club of Port Orange – South Daytona, Florida, for this generous and life-changing donation.
