We've been running at full steam putting these pumps in at Mziza. We have 11 pumps installed, hoping to reach 15 by Friday, 30 by the 15th of May. The farmers have come out day after day to help and learn to put up the pumps.
Word is spreading about the project; several times we've been stopped on the road out to the village by a farmers who want water pumps in their own gardens. This is a sign that we are being successful.
The club members are excited to get started using the pumps. We have been talking with them about how the pump is going to help them. They are hopeful that they will be able to produce a vegetable crop that will exceed their nutritional needs, and provide an income that will help them avoid selling their maize crop at low prices.
