Following on from the successful use of hand drilling technology in Zeze this grant was awarded to Kasodefo to help the community of Maswa, especially in the rural areas, to have access to clean and safe water, to provide water for domestic and commercials uses in gardening, fish farming and livestock keeping. Kasodefo recorded that 80% of Maswa villages had no access to secure, clean and safe water for domestic and commercial uses. In December 2016, they managed to buy a full set of hand drilling equipment from SHIPO Njombe and start drilling in January 2017. So far, they have drilled three boreholes and trained four youth who are competent and able to drill on their own.
