Obviously a wondrously effective organisation. Small, but exquisite in every detail”

As access to clean water is the number one priority in rural Zambia, the High Five Club plans to make water provision in wildlife areas of Zambia one of its core deliverables. We aim to expand our reach year by year bringing safe, clean water to many more people.
In 2014 we have already commissioned the construction of 4 news wells in Mnkhanya Chiefdom, supplying fresh clean water to a further 2,000 villagers for a total cost of £2,504, just £1.25 per villager. Alongside this we have renovated 2 existing wells at a total cost of £516 including the supply of windlasses (winding mechanism) complete with chains and strong metal buckets to replace the existing nylon rope and laborious ‘hand pulling’ technique. We have together brought back fresh, clean water back to 1,000 villagers at a cost of ca. £0.50 per person. Absolutely remarkable!
