Supplying water to communities
Directly or indirectly, water affects all facets of life. In the Central Kalahari Game Reserve, access to water is often a challenge for the communities residing there. One of our most significant infrastructural projects to date has been the provision of water to these PACs. In 2011, we collaborated with Vox United, a non-governmental organisation, to drill for boreholes at the villages of Metsiamanong, Molapo and Mothomelo. Unfortunately, the Gope borehole was dry; thus a pipeline was installed from the mine to supply the community with water. During 2014, the Ghaghoo mine continued with maintenance and upkeep of this infrastructure despite challenges faced due to the remoteness of these sites.
