Preserving and Promoting the Kalanga Cultural Heritage
The Agricultural Centre will include the development of an integrated irrigation and demonstration village farm. This will be developed to demonstrate Kalanga farming methods while at the same time affording locals an opportunity to grow crops for food security and the produce will be sold at the village Farmers market while the rest is consumed at the village.
The borehole will supplement water requirements for this community and go a long way to help them in market gardening and their livestock. Much later, the center intends to build an irrigation scheme for the community. This irrigation scheme will also be used by the village to demonstrate to visitors Kalanga and African farming methods. Crops from the irrigation farm will be stored in typical Kalanga or African silos so as to give the visitors a true feeling of a truly African village. When the village needs mealie meal, the maize will be crushed using true traditional way of grinding again for a truly African experience for visitors.
Gala communal area is in Region 5 of the agricultural zones in Zimbabwe. This is one of the most drought prone regions in the country. The inhabitants of Ward 6 including Gala rely on subsistence farming for their livelihoods. However, inadequate rainfall means that hunger is a common feature in their lives.
There is one dam in this district but livestock and people rely on boreholes for water and subsistence.The initial phase of this project will be the drilling of a community borehole during phase one of the project.
