The project in Gutu delivers water from a giant reservoir that was built in the 1970s but never used for irrigation. By working together with the local government and the local community, Oxfam is helping to develop an irrigation scheme which brings water from the dam to the plots of land using a simple system of pipes and canals - built by the farmers themselves.
People like Ipaishe, who got involved in the project when it started two years ago, are already seeing an amazing transformation.
We knew it could be possible to bring the water from the dam, because Oxfam were funding it and we were providing the manual labour. We knew it would be possible and we did it!
Ipaishe Masvingise now grows enough to eat, as well as having plenty left over to share with friends and family
