BORE HOLES

Water supply in this area is very unreliable. Both residents and animals are struggling with a drought and famine that has seen the United Nations call for help. Two bore holes are needed: one for humans and one for animals.

Installation of one bore hole (including drilling, piping, head and the services of a geologist) costs US$15,000.

OX & PLOUGH

An ox and plough can set up a family with a means of income: planting crops, harvesting them and selling in the local markets.

Salt & Light is needing 20-30 sets of oxen and ploughs. Each costs US$1,000.
