Elephant Pumps in Africa scheme
Baldwin Boxall knows that keeping our team hydrated is vital to help them perform at their best. As a result, we have directly supported the installation of a new water well in Africa.
These funds are used to build Elephant Pumps, based on a 2,000 year old Chinese design that the CEO of The Africa Trust adapted to make it stronger, more durable and made and maintained using materials that are locally available in remote rural sub-Saharan African communities.
Our Elephant Pump has now been installed in Africa on our behalf and it will be a much needed source of clean and fresh drinking water for many. The Baldwin Boxall name is proudly displayed on our well along with our slogan.
Our slogan was carefully chosen after asking our team for suggestions. Dean, our Stores Manager, then suggested we find out the location of where our pump was to be installed in order that we could then thoughtfully translate the slogan into the local language. Incredibly and by astonishing coincidence, Dean was happens to have been born in the very same local area, which is Manicaland, a province in the North Eastern highlands of Zimbabwe.
Translated, our slogan reads:
Over the years, Baldwin Boxall has supported many charities close to our hearts and we continue to do so striving to make the world a brighter place.
