Moving in line with the president’s Vision 2030 mantra of leaving no one and no place behind, Prevail Group International (PGI) has to date created 500 jobs nationwide.
PGI, the company contracted to drill boreholes under the presidential borehole drilling scheme, is employing skilled and semi-skilled workers in Zimbabwe’s 10 provinces where it is operating as each province carries about 50 employees.
Renowned business mogul, Dr. Paul Tungwarara, who is also the special investment advisor to the president, is the leader of the group.
Dr. Tungwarara has high links worldwide, including connections to the owner of the world’s tallest building, Burj Kalifa, and the owner of Dammarc, the biggest property company in Dubai.
Prevail is expanding its business after recently finishing its factory in Tynward, Harare, for manufacturing different products.
The firm has also finished its quarry mine in Buhera and is now mobilising to start the construction of a five-star hotel in Kariba.
Prevail, which is playing a big part in the economy of  Zimbabwe, has also moved into the logistics business, having started with brand new 20 by 30-tonne trucks already in the country.
Prevail, which is a renowned borehole drilling giant, has also now spread its wings to Matebelaland South.
The team is currently installing several boreholes in Thabani village, Tsholotsho.
Apart from drilling boreholes, it is also installing irrigation facilities under the presidential borehole drilling initiative.
PGI has already taken its borehole drilling initiative to Plumtree as it continues to provide portable clean water to rural communities.
This ambitious programme, overseen by the Zimbabwe National Water Authority (ZINWA), aims to address water challenges as well as transform the livelihoods of residents in rural areas.
It aligns with the government’s efforts to improve water access in remote communities, supporting both horticulture and domestic usage.
Dr. Paul Tungwarara, chairperson of the PGI, saw his company installing at least 100 boreholes in Buhera before Independence Day celebrations at the Murambinda growth point.
“Our role is to provide potable water to the people of Zimbabwe, leaving no one and no place behind.
“In areas we have drilled boreholes so far, people are happy they can now access water from the tap without walking for long distances,” said Dr. Tungwarara.
