A hot and dry place

1DB_1937Southern Matabeleland in Zimbabwe is the driest part of the country.  In the communal lands dry land farming fails 2 out of three years.  I spent 4 days in Matabeleland in June 2013 assessing projects for possible funding.  Small dams with simple irrigation schemes give communities the opportunity to provide food and some cash for their families.  This is not charity – it is people exercising their right to control their own resources.
