As it is they have no well. We get water from a stream canal from Bata shoes industry waste water used for cleaning leather. It is dirt water and since their most recent drought, they will suffer to get sufficient water for their garden and animals.
The project started in August 2018 by a group of single parent mothers as a way of generating income to boost their economic status. Apart from vegetable production, the project also has indigenous chicken production.
