Grace resides in the drought plagued Sobendle Ward, Lupane and oversees a household with nine oprhaned grandchildren.
Supported by BESTSELLER FOUNDATION’s partners Christian Care & DanChurchAid Grace is a lucky member of a government irrigation scheme which is empowering poor farmers in Lupane District – an area notorious for poor rainfalls and limited access to natural water.
Together with 63 farmers she has access to 28 Ha. of irrigated land. The land is watered through an irrigation scheme which is linked to the nearby dam.
This set up enables her to grow green vegetables - a rarety in the area - which can therefore be sold at a good price.
