33 schools in Chivi have received drip irrigation equipment to sustain nutritional gardens in the perennially dry area.

The schools in the perennially dry Chivi area accepted delivery of irrigation equipment which is expected to boost their nutritional gardens.

With the national feeding programme launched in schools across the country, nutritional gardens now play a significant role. 

The equipment will serve the schools in different communities and members of those areas said it is an important development initiative.

The Zanu PF government believes in development which supports the country’s young people, said Chivi Rural District Council chairperson Dr Killer Zivhu who gave the irrigation equipment to the schools.  

In an area which is generally dry, irrigation has always been presented as the last solution to creating sustainable agriculture in the country.
