Full Belly Zooms Into Zambia 

In September, The Full Belly Team visited Zambia! Jock Brandis and Randy Shackelford, with Universal Nut Shellers and Rocker Water Pumps in tote, aimed to demonstrate to local farmers the ease these tools could bring farmers and local commuities alike. While in Zambia, Jock and Randy also worked with natives to test the local peanuts for Aflatoxin, which is a species of fungi growing on the local protein source causing them to become unsafe for selling and eating. These tests allow local farmers to ensure their products are safe for consuming and exporting. The trip also focused on equipping farmers with as much storing and harvesting knowledge as possible so that the most can be made of each and every peanut harvest. Finally, Jock presented a Rocker Water Pump to the social enterprise Zasaka. With the acquisition of the Rocker Water Pump Zasaka will be able to reproduce and distribute the technology to farmers throughout Zambia; thus making it possible for farmers to pump five gallons of water per minute and lift water as high as thirty feet.
