Nearly 5 months on from the day the borehole was switched on, its effects are starting to be seen.

The community have set up a big garden with basic vegetables and many highly nutritional moringa trees ( for more information about moringa and our gallery for a picture of the infant trees).

Generally, health standards have improved considerably due to the improved sanitation brought by the borehole water. For example, the children used to have persistent problems with scabies, but now it is a thing of the past.

There have been water difficulties in the wider Goromonzi community so people have been coming to get water from this borehole. Pastor Sikiyani says that they have had to write people's names down in order to charge them because of the costs involved (electricity, maintenance etc.), but they are still to collect the fees charged.
