Weʼve raised £1,210 to provide solar power and clean water to Numwa school in Zimbabwe.
- Cambridge, UK
- Funded on Thursday, 31st December 2020
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
In rural Zimbabwe, Numwa primary and secondary school and their surrounding communities have been without an electricity supply for months. Escalating energy prices and an intermittent electricity supply has created a water crisis, as electric borehole pumps are without power.
Erratic and depleted rainfall has caused chronic drought in Zimbabwe for the last few years, leaving hydroelectric dams dry. After months of power rationing, Numwa school and surrounding community were without power for the whole of last year and the supply is still very intermittent. Energy, fuel and transport prices in Zimbabwe are escalating and running generators is not feasible for rural communities.
We are raising funds to buy 25 solar panels, which will:
- Power the borehole pump, supplying clean water to the primary, secondary school and the surrounding community.
- Provide lighting to the school classrooms.
- Provide a power supply to the teacher's houses.
