In Ethiopia over 40 million people suffer drought conditions, yet most of them live within 30 meters of fresh water, right under their feet ! At MapAid we reveal exactly where to dig for it. Our detailed mapping pinpoints the most viable locations for the most sustainable boreholes. We plot where irrigation will feed the maximum amount of people. And we minimise waste by guiding resources to where they’ll work the hardest for families.

* All ticket holders, free Scottish dancing classes ! Sunday 13th and Sunday 20th Jan, 3pm-5pm, contact Rupert.
