Farmers operating as clusters can access assistance for the provision of portable water through the Integrated Support Programme for Arable Agriculture Development (ISPAAD). ISPAAD will, where possible drill/equip boreholes, or purchase existing boreholes. Immediately after completion, the boreholes will be handed over to Cluster Management Committees to operate and manage, as stipulated in the constitution. The boreholes will be used exclusively for provision of domestic water.
Applicants must agree that operation and maintenance of the infrastructure will be the responsibility of the Cluster Management Committee.
- Visit the Extension Officer at the nearest District Crop Production Office with the relevant supporting documents.
- The ISPAAD / Extension Office shall assess the situations as per its merits to ascertain if there is a need for the provision of water.
- The farmers will be advised to have a constitution that will include agreement to undertake maintenance of the boreholes.
- The District Crop Production Office shall then inform the applicants in writing about the outcome of the application.
