Black Power
Bulawayo District

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.

Black power cooperative started on the 25th of May 2020.lt is situated in Bulawayo central as a keep Bulawayo Green Agriculture Perry Urban area. lt was inspired and highly motivated by the lntuba sustainable development ways of farming using raised beds and DIY drip watering system.
The group has 16 members, some aged above 60 years youth aged 20 and above.
We don't have a borehole yet. The current irrigation system involves fetching water 4 km from the garden and carrying it on their heads. Wheelbarrows cannot be pushed on this path due to many stumbling stones.

The school children go to school carrying 5 litres gallons to bring drinking water since this one is dirt daily.

Cowdrypark is the most popular location for selling crops within 4km of Bulawayo. It has our best customers who buy and finish up our crops. They que at our garden to find that crops are few due to lack of water. Even these nearby customers could benefit to get water from Black power well, because Bulawayo rations water.
