Fighting the hot season in Zambian villages

Since every year lots and lots of rural Zambian villages suffer in the dry season because of too little rains and dry rivers and streams Planting A Future was thinking about how to solve this problem.

So we decided to block a little stream with some sand bags to store water in a pond, leaving a spill way for people farther down the stream to access the water too.

Check out our cool new “dam”!
