Farm School gets PlayPump

A small farm school in the Free State Province has been struggling with lack of water for many years.  They currently have 56 kids, but another 50 kids have registered for 2015, making their lack of water problem even more concerning.

They started a small vegetable patch to help feed the kids, but with no reliable water they could only grow a few vegetables.

Now with a PlayPump they can grow more vegetables, giving the kids a healthy meal at lunch time and teach the kids how to grow vegetables.

A generous organization in the United States of American has also funded a larger vegetable patch, under netting to protect the vegetables for the extreme weather. Seeds have been donated and spinach, betroot and other vegetables are being grown.

 

???????????????????????

The delight on the kids and teachers face when they saw the water streaming out cannot be described.
