Project Zambia

In 2014 Golf Fore Africa launched a program to provide safe water to more that 40,000 people living in rural Zambia through the drilling of 117 new boreholes and rehabilitating 16 existing water points. Working with our implementing partner World Vision, the villagers were trained in a community-led sanitation approach. Community members were educated in the importance of good hygiene practices, trained to construct pit latrines, hand-washing stations, rubbish pits, and bathing shelters. They learned to construct elevated dish racks and were taught about the importance of safe water storage at the household level.

This project was completed in May 2016! It has been an amazing venture in helping Zambians and dramatically changing their lives! We have seen lives improved greatly especially for women and girls with this access to clean water.

As 12 year old Grace Mukozomba, who is now in the 5th grade at Mwachilele Primary School, says, “As a result of drinking water from the stream, we suffered from stomach pains. I had diarrhea and I remember that when I was in grade three, I failed to walk and was in bed due to stomach complications.” Now, with the drilling of a borehole, it is a great relief to have safe drinking water. “I will finish education and will never stop going to school. I want to work hard and become a teacher,” says Grace.
