The Center for Gender and Community Development (CGCDZ) last week extended a helping hand to the Mhene village fishery project as part of the organisation community empowering initiatives.
The community-based organisation managed is drilling a borehole for the community, which is under Chief Charumbira’s area, for the provision of water to the fishery project and to several households.
The borehole helps about 40 households and will supply water to the project which is being run by local community members.
CGCDZ Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Elliot Vengesa told TellZim News that the organisation was committed to the empowerment of communities and the provision of water as a basic need.
"Our commitment is to empower communities through programmes that are designed to meet community needs. Since water is a necessity, we saw it fit to drill a borehole for this potentially prosperous society," said Vengesa.
The community lacks a reliable water supply system for the project and for domestic use, and the borehole, which is set to be completed by the end of November, will provide some critical relief to many villagers.
Recenty, CGCDZ helped upcoming Renco Mine-based gospel band, Morning Stars launch their debut album.
