  1. This is some interesting propaganda story. The Zambian government realised this challenge of water some years back, and through the MLGH, the National Rural Water Supply and Sanitation Program was established under DHID with loans from AfDB, KFW, EIB and counterpart funding from Unicef and JICA and for the past 10yrs we have been drilling boreholes and constructing pit latrines. Its therefore very interesting for an NGO with the purpose of enriching themselves to come up with such a video as though govt has been sitting idle. If at all they mean well, let them channel their efforts into the national program.

  2. A picture and video clip delivers a thousand words. Before and after. Very humbling and vary touching to see such dirty water, and the results very uplifting indeed. Hats off to VWZ and your partners UNICEF, Oxfam, Simavi, KCM plc and GRZ. The simple manual drill used to drill the Borehole is Appropriate Technology at best.
    I am sure the other projects VWZ is associated with are as awesome i.e. Sanitation, Hygiene education, Livestock and Vegetable production. May God Almighty bless you all.

  3. Dr Ben Carson is coming to Zambia next month to see the Banda twins whom he separated 18 years ago. They were conjoint on top of their heads, their bodies in opposite directions.

  4. @cactus you seem to have a problem with all NGOs I can tell you that VWZ works within the laws and policies of the country and they work with the local authorities under the guidance of the MLGH. So saying it’s for self enrichment is neither here nor there. The fact remains that VWZ is a Zambian NGO that has helped government do a lot of WASH. Go to any forum for WASH you will hear even government itself acknowledging how NGOs must operate in Zambia with VWZ being cited as an example

  5. Cactus I am very sorry for addressing the wrong person. A thousand apologies. I meant a run away senior engineer who seems to have comfort in Australia and has run away from solving the problems of WASH here in his homeland. All he does now is criticise everything NGOs. Senior engineer what solutions have you brought home ever since to tool a trip down under?

  6. I ALWAYS HAVE A PROBLEM WITH OUR GOVERNMENTS. SINCE INDEPENDENCE THE PROBLEMS ZAMBIA HAS BEEN FACING ARE WATER HARNESSING AND SEWERAGE, ADEQUATE AND AVAILABLE FOOD FOR ALL. TRULY, 50 YEAR OF SELF-GOVERNANCE, WE SHOULD BE TALKING ABOUT IMPROVING TECHNOLOGY WHICH SHOULD HAVE BEEN IN PLACE ON THE SAME PACE AS SOUTH KOREAN, MALAYSIA OR OTHER COUNTRIES. I HAVE MENTIONED THESE COUNTRIES BECAUSE BY ZAMBIA INDEPENDENCE THESE COUNTRIES WERE FAR WORSE THAN ZAMBIA. IN FACT ZAMBIA WAS BY FAR RICHER THAN THESE COUNTRIES. LUAPULA AND WESTERN PROVINCES HAVE ONE THING IN COMMON- ABUNDANT WATER BUT VILLAGERS AND TOWN DWELLERS HAVE NO TAPPED WATER AND SEWERAGE SYSTTEMS AND THESE ARE SERIOUS TOURIST POTENTIAL AREAS.
