Farmer Maria has her own affordable borehole and pump that provides clean water throughout the year. She shares it with the entire village. Her piggery and poultry business also benefits from the water and pay for maintenance. A great example how a private owned pump serves a community sustainable.

Lieve Sinterklaas,

Nog even snel een kado kopen?
Zonder naar de winkel te lopen?

Regel het via deze link https://jacana.help/donate#SponsorKliks on-lijn,

Steun de mensen op ' t Afrikaanse continent,
terwijl u vriend en familie verwend.

Het kado is op tijd,
en een Zambiaans gezin heeft ook profijt.

Jacana SMART Centre trains manual drillers of boreholes, these are local small scale entrepreneurs. It’s very difficult to explain in these sessions what is happening deep under the surface (sometimes 40m deep). Why do you need to do certain actions above surface in order to have the right effect down there where no eyes can go. Also fixing problems like collapsing or fishing out broken tools, back washing and swabbing are hard to explain if you can’t see what is happening.
With a donation from Kootje foundation, Jacana and 3D modeller and animator Mr. Collins Mulenga were able to make a tutorial which explains the popular SHIPO manual drilling concept. The tutorial is a combination of videos and animations and makes it possible to show hidden parts of the drilling process.
SHIPO manual drilling uses a range of techniques to deal with specific situations. Some of these techniques are: augering, stone punching, percussion jetting and (hand) sludging. It also explains about casing design, production and installation. Developing of the borehole is another subject and finally it focusses on a few important trouble shooting techniques.
But please have a look at it yourself: https://jacana.help/resources/water/

How to increase the functionality of rural water supply systems?
How to reach the SDG’s target group including the small remote rural?
How to create WASH supply capacity that will grow as population increases?

The SMART centres focus on:
1 Innovation of proven approaches and technologies that drastically reduce cost of water.
2 Training local SMEs who continue after project ends; “a profit based sustainability”
3 Combining Self-supply, productive and household water use; “Family owned becomes community served”.

Obuloni Mwansa worked as a well digger for the Chipata water department. Obuloni is used to finding water in difficult areas. He would sometimes even use dynamite to make a well. He wants to expand his well digging business into manual drilling. Jacana SMART Centre trained him in manual drilling. Obuloni drills now boreholes for his community.
