Nkhube Community Borehole Project– made possible through funds generated by the Nedbank Swaziland’s Imvelo Mountain Bike Classic and carried out by Big Game Parks Projects.
The Nkhube community situated on the boundary of Mlilwane North, faced with the need for clean drinking water. Big Game Parks provided a solution by installing a borehole and water tank at no cost to the community. The borehole and tank operate solely on independent solar power, making it both environmentally friendly and sustainable.
Solar was the chosen form of energy to power this project, due its environmentally friendly nature and its low maintenance. An additional environmentally friendly aspect, stemming from this project is the fact that the borehole water can also be used by the community to carry out household chores such as clothes washing. Instead of washing clothes in the stream, the community can wash clothes closer to home with no pollution of the stream caused by washing powders and soaps.
A huge thank you to Nedbank Swaziland for their sponsorship towards our event and of course to the riders for their contribution to the project fund through entry fees, which in turn enable us to carry out this wonderful community project!
