The Trust’s plant machinery has been out at Dindira Dam and Kavateta Dam, working to desilt these two major water sources.  TANAPA provided labour, a lorry and fuel and it was a timely desilting programme as, when the rains came, they filled up Dindira and even Kavateta held some water.  Kavateta is always a difficult engineering job: it probably needs machines on it for at least 6 months until the job is done properly.  Tony flies at least twice a week on patrol to back up the TANAPA rangers in the field

We have donated the building materials for a classroom each to four schools over the past year and all four classrooms are now complete.

The Environmental Education programme will resume again in late January, now that the schools have gone back after their Christmas holiday.  We will wait until the rain subsides to send the bus out again to collect the students.  The roads can be treacherous in the rains and it is obviously safe to wait until everything dries out a bit so that there are no risks of the bus slipping around.  Since June 2008, when the programme started, we have brought in 1,200 people on this education programme.
