Harare – Nakiso Borehole Drilling has just completed their first Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) project at Glory Ministries in Chitungwiza.
Corporate Social Responsibility is a voluntary way of giving back to the community. Under the CSR initiative, the water solutions entity has offered siting, drilling and casing and water reticulation services.
The charitable borehole project will alleviate persistent water shortages experienced in the community and nation at large, collaborates with Nakiso Borehole Drilling, CSR motto which states that: “We exist to empower and transform communities, one borehole at a time.”
The move to drill a borehole at Glory Ministries came to Nakiso Borehole Drilling, Chief Executive Officer, Lincoln Masiyenyama, early one morning.
“While driving at 2am, I witnessed women and children fetching water for domestic use. The current water shortages affect women the most, who spend more time looking for the precious liquid.
“After that moving incident, Nakiso Borehole Drilling made a decision to provide a service to the community, and Glory Ministries is our initial Corporate Social Responsibility project, and we hope to do the same in other areas.”
Zimbabwe is facing a persistent water crisis, spanning decades. An estimated 4.5 million residents in Harare only access running water once a week, according to authorities, forcing many, especially women to spend prolonged hours at community water points.
Chitungwiza relies on Harare for water provision, making the dormitory town’s situation dire, explaining why Glory Ministries founder, Bishop Pride Sibiya is ecstatic.
“I am feeling very excited because our prayer for water provision has been answered. We appreciate Nakiso Borehole Drilling for providing water as this will increase our life expectancy because three-quarters of our bodies is made up of water.
“The borehole will improve the lives of the community, while God provides people with solutions where councils have failed. We will take measures to protect the community by also protecting the community by maintaining certain norms.”
David Kariwo, a Glory Ministries member and community resident witnessed the borehole drilling at Bethel Worship Centre. The event has left lasting memories for him.
“I want to appreciate what we have witnessed today. We had a problem in our community and we had to go to travel distances to fetch water for use at the church and our homes. With the borehole nearby, we will save time, while many will get saved through water provision.”
Nakiso Borehole Drilling, a powerhouse in water provision states: “We are a purpose-driven company that aims to become the benchmark that set the standards of excellence in the borehole drilling arena.
“With our modern fleet and advanced multipurpose drilling rigs, support equipment and experienced personnel – we provide cost-effective, professional borehole drilling services.”
