In January, 2011, my wife Sari and I moved to Zambia to begin a project.
The goal is to see whether there really is “abundant food” in the ground, whether it’s enough to pay for water improvements, and how this might be done.
The name of the village is Simango. It is about 57 km north of Livingstone, the renowned home of the mighty Victoria Falls – Mosi-o-Tunya in the local tongue: “the Smoke that Thunders:” An ironic (or prophetic?) setting for a rural water project that addresses issues of water scarcity, inaccessibility and quality.
