Each year the school children of Mfuwe turn their artistic talents to producing a fund-raising calendar. The 2017 calendar features artwork that demonstrates the benefits of the Bushcamp Company’s “Commit to Clean Water” campaign. Deep boreholes have been drilled in forty different village locations and schools, and the children have illustrated how daily life has been dramatically improved. Safe, clean water has resulted in better health and has allowed villagers to spend more time on productive activities rather than having to trek long distances to collect water from rivers and waterholes where they might encounter potentially dangerous animals. As an added benefit people are now able to better irrigate crops and gardens and grow much needed food.
The calendar will soon be available from Mfuwe Lodge.
