3 Ton Truck
A three-ton truck is one of the key items we need to transport crops (maize and wheat), building materials, basic necessities and farm machinery across the four districts. With the foundation growing so rapidly in the last two years, this vehicle is crucial as we are currently unable to reach the most remote villages and communities we work with.

We currently make multiple trips in vans and cars, many of which encounter problems due to the poor transport links. We estimate it would cost nearly £8,000 to source and buy a second-hand vehicle of this kind.
