As with many countries around the world, Zimbabwe is feeling the effects of climate change. With this project Soft Foot Alliance is helping to create better access to precious water for communities in a regenerative way.
Soft Foot Alliance has introduced the rainwater Jar to our community as part of the evolution of our permculture strategy. ‘Catch and store energy’ is one of the permaculture principles that we use to design our work towards building a landscape of regeneration.
Local builders have been trained on how to build simple rainwater jars that collect 3000 litres of water from the roof of a small house. We can honestly say that the community is so excited about this and we can’t keep up with the demand!
As a special thanks to the homesteads and families in the community who have been that early adopters of our permaculture and regenerative techniques, which are making such a difference to the resilience of the community, we would like these villagers to receive a rainwater jar as a gift to recognize their hard work and to help to continue improving their lives, crops and the landscape.
Donations to support this important project would be very welcome. Help us support communities by donating to our simple, pragmatic rainwater capture and storage project.
