Situated in a very dry part of Southern Zimbabwe, this project seeks to rejuvinate the local environment though developing environmental activities based on the availability of water in the locality. Its components include a dam, local biodiversity conservation, gardening and sustainable cropping (promotion of traditional, small drought resistant grains through environmentally sustainable methods).With the fact that the nearest dam is 7km away and boreholes are shortlived ,this project will help relieve the chronic water shortages experienced in the area. Objectives -increase vegetation cover and diversity through replanting and the creation of a moister soil environment -improve local water supply for stock -improve ground water recharge thereby improving water supply for human consumption via boreholes -provide the community with opportunities to develop small scale irrigation schemes to improve -to provide catchment management to tyhe community to ensure catchment protectipon and the sustainability of the dam Project participants and beneficiaries -The group is comprised of 88 adult members who signed up to build and develop a small irrigation garden at the site.However the entire community will benefit from the project. project activities -dam construction fencing of the water body -constructing water troughs -establishing nutritional gardens -reclaiming gullies -growing of trees and vetiver grass outputs -improved water supply ,allowing a better quality of life for rural residents and improved environmental health through better water retention and improved resource management. It is hoped that this dam will act as a focusfor the community to develop other projects such as brickmaking, crafts,etc.
